The A-Team Joe Carnahan Director Sics Wolves On Liam Neeson

News, Projects

Joe Carnahan (The A-Team, Smokin’ Aces) has gotten a greenlight to start production on The Grey, a thriller that would star Liam Neeson, Dallas Roberts, James Badge Dale, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Nonso Anozie and Joe Anderson.

The team of actors would play oil rig workers who find themselves stranded in the Alaskan tundra after a plane crash. A pack of rogue wolves (are their really any other kind?) begin picking them off. Rouge? Alaska? Is this movie produced by Sarah Palin? Maybe she’ll swoop in during the third act and save the team by sniping wolves from her helicopter.

The film will shoot in Vancouver for forty days. Carnahan teases that the movie’s wolves will be extremely memorable as he hopes to capture the animals’ unique hunting pattern.
