Wilson Replaces Olyphant On “Carrion Road”

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”.
