Atlas Independent has set Ian McShane to star with Patrick Wilson in The Man On Carrion Road, which Open Grave’s Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego will direct based on Nils Lyew’s script. McShane will play an aging retired Sheriff of a small border town with violent tendencies. He teams with the town’s new sheriff (Wilson) to stop a mysterious cartel butcher who’s brutalizing the town’s residents. William Green, Aaron Ginsburg, and Andy Horwitz will produce through Atlas Independent, an offshoot of Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment. MICA Entertainment is financing with Relativity International selling the picture overseas. Production begins in April in Utah.
McShane just wrapped the Brett Ratner-directed Hercules and will next be seen in the comedy Cuban Fury. Pic comes after the William Monahan-directed Mojave with Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund, also a collaboration between Atlas Independent, MICA Entertainment and Relativity International. McShane is represented by ICM, Independent Talent, Gallant Management and Nelson Davis Wetzstein.
Sanctuary will be directed by Apollo 18 helmer Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego and produced by Atlas Independent, the company said today. Written by Ryne Douglas Pearson, the horror pic follows three documentarians who travel to South America to investigate a town that mysteriously disappeared from the map. The trio is led to the ultimate enigma: an immense concrete structure located in the middle of the missing town, with no entrances or exits. Highland Film Group is handling worldwide sales and will introduce the title next month at EFM in Berlin. It marks the latest tie-up between Atlas Independent and Lopez-Gallego, following December 2013′s Open Grave starring Sharlto Copley and The Man On Carrion Road, which was announced at the last Cannes Film Festival and begins production in April. Atlas Independent is currently in post William Monahan’s Mojave. Read More »
