Quarry Cast Stellan Skarsgard

Big-screen staple Stellan Skarsgård has boarded Cinemax’s drama pilot Quarry, TVLine has learned.

Loosely based on a series of books by Max Allen Collins, the project centers on a Marine marksman (played by PrometheusLogan Marshall-Green) who returns home from Vietnam in 1973 only to find himself shunned and demonized. The disillusioned vet is quickly recruited into a network of contract killers and immersed in corruption along the Mississippi River.

Skarsgård (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) will play The Broker, a shadowy figure who lures Green’s title character into his criminal ranks.

Noah Taylor (Game of Thrones) and Skipp Sudduth (The Good Wife) also co-star.

Rectify scribes Michael D. Fuller and Graham Gordy penned and exec-produce Quarry, while John Hillcoat (Lawless, The Road) serves as EP and director of the pilot. Keith Redmon (Awake), Steve Golin, David Kanter and Matt DeRoss are also attached as producers.
