Patrick Wilson ("The Conjuring," "Watchmen") will replace Timothy Olyphant as the lead in "The Man on Carrion Road" for Atlas Independent and Relativity International.
The story deals with a border town sheriff who teams up with his retired predecessor to investigate a botched cartel deal which has lead to a mysterious cartel butcher brutalising his town.
Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego will direct from a script by Nils Lyew, with filming to begin in March. William Green, Aaron Ginsburg and Andy Horwitz will produce.
Olyphant had to depart due to scheduling conflicts with FX's "Justified".
