As Ian McShane fans patiently await word on the rumored “Deadwood” movie, the actor will be giving them plenty to savor until that project (hopefully) arrives, including a role in the upcoming “American Gods.” But McShane devotees shouldn’t let the indie movie “The Hollow Point” slide off their radar as it serves up a gritty-looking thriller.

Directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego (“Apollo 18,” “Open Grave“) and co-starring Patrick Wilson, John Leguizamo, James Belushi, and Lynn Collins, the story is set in the back roads of a border town, where a botched Mexican-cartel arms deal leaves several dead and a bag of money missing. An aging retired sheriff with violent tendencies and his young replacement with a dark past must join forces to investigate the source of this deal and protect the residents of the town. And as you’ll see in the clip below, McShane doesn’t follow the rulebook when it comes to getting answers.

“The Hollow Point” opens on December 16th.
