Deadwood leading man and Broadway vet Ian McShane is set to join Tony nominee Patrick Wilson in the new film The Man on Carrion Road, according to The Wrap. Directed by Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego, the thriller's screenplay is written by Nils Lyew.
The Man on Carrion Road is described as the story of a failed Mexican cartel deal in the back roads of a border town. The town’s new sheriff (Wilson) must work with the lawman (McShane) he replaced, to investigate where the deal originated in order to prevent an enigmatic cartel butcher and his systematic brutalization of the town’s occupants.
McShane most recently appeared on the Main Stem in The Homecoming. Other Broadway credits include The Promise. In addition to Deadwood, notable screen credits include Jack the Giant Slayer, Snow White and the Huntsman and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Wilson will be seen April 3 in a one-night-only concert of Guys and Dolls at Carnegie Hall with Nathan Lane, Sierra Boggess and Megan Mullally. He was nominated for a Tony for his performances in Oklahoma! and The Full Monty. Other Broadway credits include All My Sons and Barefoot in the Park. His film and TV credits include The Conjuring, Insidious, Watchmen and A Gifted Man.
