When he isn’t dealing with hoopleheads on “Deadwood” or the Brotherhood Without Banners on “Game of Thrones,” Ian McShane is apparently making movies about the border war. The criminally underused English actor stars in “The Hollow Point,” an upcoming thriller out later this year. Watch the first trailer, which first premiered on Yahoo Movies, below.
Not quite a bad lieutenant but certainly a compromised sheriff, his character Leland makes an enemy of a Mexican cartel by attempting to prevent it from smuggling guns and other contraband into America. Unlike McShane’s best-known role, for which he won a richly deserved Golden Globe and received an Emmy nomination, this one actually finds him in the present day.
Patrick Wilson stars opposite McShane in the film, which was written by Nils Lyew and directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego; John Leguizamo, Lynn Collins and Jim Belushi all have supporting roles. “The Hollow Point” will be released in theaters on December 16.
