Joe Carnahan’s THE GREY almost locked
Joe Carnahan has been pretty hit or miss critically since he blast onto the scene with his 2002 feature NARC. Since then, he has directed SMOKIN' ACES and THE A-TEAM. Both films were met with polarizing opinions, however Carnahan's filmmaking is rarely the issue. With his next film, THE GREY, he's looking for a major redemption.
Carnahan took to his Twitter to give us some updates on how the production of THE GREY is coming along. The film is heading towards it's final edit, which would make it "locked" and he hopes to ease the fears of those who have opposed him. He claims, "Almost locked THE GREY. It’s a monster. Haters prepare. Your hopes will be dashed.”
The film follows a group of Alaskan pipeline workers whose plane goes down, leaving them hunted by a pack of wolves living in the snowy outdoors. Carnahan seems to have a real passion toward this one, that actually could in turn have positive effects on the film. This kind of film certainly doesn't hit the big screen all that often. His sensibilities certainly make sense for this picture.
I tend to be a Carnahan sympathizer, having liked SMOKIN' ACES quite a bit, and I didn't hate A-TEAM. However, I feel as though there have been much greener pastures of what he is capable of, and this film seems like it could be it. Plus, any excuse to pair Carnahan with Liam Neeson is okay in my book.
