PanARMENIAN.Net - John Leguizamo, Lynn Collins and Jim Belushi have boarded Atlas Independent's The Man on Carrion Road, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego film will star Patrick Wilson and Ian McShane. The story chronicles 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 (Leguizamo) and his systematic brutalization of the town's residents. Nils Lyew wrote the screenplay.

William Green, Aaron Ginsburg and Andy Horwitz of Atlas Independent will produce. MICA Entertainment is financing, with Relativity International selling the film overseas. Production is scheduled to begin April 14. The Man on Carrion Road marks the fifth film that Atlas Independent has produced since its inception in 2012. Atlas Independent is a label of Charles Roven's Atlas Entertainment.

Leguizamo most recently performed his one-man show on the HBO special John Leguizamo's Ghetto Klown. He also will star alongside Uma Thurman, Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart in the upcoming action-comedy film American Ultra, directed by Nima Nourizadeh.

Collins (John Carter) appeared in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Merchant of Venice opposite Al Pacino. Collins recently wrapped production on the action-thriller Lost in the Sun opposite Josh Duhamel.

Belushi is best known for his role on the long-running sitcom According to Jim. He is currently in postproduction on three new projects including North of Hell, Undrafted and A Change of Heart.
