THE MAN ON CARRION ROAD follows "the visceral story of a botched Mexican cartel deal in the back roads of a border town. The town's new sheriff (Wilson) must team up with the retired lawman (McShane) 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."

McShane's upcoming film projects include El Nino, Cuban Fury and Hercules. Other recent credits include Jack the Giant Slayer, Snow White and the Huntsman, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and more. On television, McShane has appeared in Kings, The Pillars of the Earth, American Horror Story and more.

McShane starred on Broadway in 1967's The Promise and 2007's The Homecoming, the latter for which he won a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble Performance.

In 2003, Wilson won critical acclaim for his performance in Mike Nichols' 2003 drama HBO mini-series Angels in America. He received both a Golden Globe nomination and an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Wilson has appeared in feature films such as The Alamo, The Phantom of the Opera, Little Children, Watchmen, The A-Team, The Ledge, Insidious, and The Conjuring. He starred in the CBS drama A Gifted Man, which premiered in 2011 and was cancelled in 2012.

His Broadway credits include: All My Sons, Barefoot in the Park, Something Good, Oklahoma!, The Full Monty, and The Gershwins' Fascinating Rhythm.
