Timothy Olyphant Takes the Lead in ‘The Man on Carrion Road’

Timothy Olyphant joins The Man on Carrion Road Atlas Independent, the affiliate company of Charles Roven's Atlas Entertainment and Relativity International, the newly formed international division of Relativity Media are pleased to announce a two picture deal in which Atlas Independent will produce and Relativity International will co-finance and sell internationally. The first film of the two will be the Gonzalo López-Gallego helmed The Man on Carrion Road. Relativity International, led by President Camela Galano, will commence international sales at Cannes.

Gonzalo López-Gallego (Apollo 18) will direct The Man on Carrion Road based on rising screenwriter, Nils Lyew's, script. Timothy Olyphant is currently attached to star. William Green and Aaron Ginsburg of Atlas Independent will produce. Atlas' Andy Horwitz will executive produce. Atlas Independent is also currently in post-production on López-Gallego's feature, Open Grave.

The Man on Carrion Road is the visceral story of a botched Mexican cartel deal in the back roads of a border town. The town's new sheriff (played by Olyphant) must team up with the retired lawman he replaced to investigate the source of the deal in order to stop a mysterious cartel butcher and his systematic brutalization of the town's residents. A gritty and modern thriller, The Man on Carrion Road collides head on with the pathos and hard realities that inhabit life along the border; it's a story that explores the ambitions, difficulties, and consequences that turn men into monsters and monsters into reality.

The Man on Carrion Road will start production at the end of August in Medellin, Columbia.
