Joe Carnahan says A-Team 2 won't happen, although he'd love to do Narc 2

01.09.2012

Joe Carnahan has dropped out of UMBRA and is looking for a new project, and recently discussed a few of his options with Moviehole at a press junket for THE GREY alongside Liam Neeson.

First up, sorry A-Team fans, but Neeson doesn't think a sequel will ever happen. 

“A-TEAM [2], I don’t think so. I don’t think it made enough money. The studio don’t want [it]“, said Neeson.

Carnahan isn't big on the idea either. "As much fun as I had making that movie, I don’t want to get tied up in that whole world of sequels and franchises. There’s too many movies I want to make. There’s too many other stories I want to tell. The good thing that came out of A-TEAM not being successful is that I would never have made THE GREY, I’d be working on A-TEAM 2 right now. And that would have been a bigger bummer to me.”

One film he'd love to revist, however, is NARC, the gritty dirty cop film that features Ray Liotta in one of his best roles. Carnahan has already approached the actor with ideas about a possible sequel, in fact.

“I was talking to Ray Liotta the other night about a Narc sequel”, Carnahan reveals. “I told him the opening…if I could do that movie for like ten million bucks and not be bothered and be left to do my thing I would do it in a second. Creative control means more to me than having my name on a big-budget thing.

Of course, the very big question is what the plot could be for a sequel, and what Liotta's role would be. Especially if you remember the events of NARC. 

Still, it's certainly curious. Would you like to see Carnahan return to the world of NARC?

Narc is his only good movie. Normal he'd want to revisit it. But I'm not sure it's a movie that needs a sequel.

A Narc sequel? That's just plain weird if you ask me, I wasn't that big on Narc and it isn't that well remembered, and even if it was, it's not exactly an ideal film for a sequel really, I like Carnahan, but this sounds just as pointless as Basic Instinct 2.

It would be great to bring another since this is Carnahan's specialty. And as for Ray Liotta, it will bring him another great role to deal with. He's been unlucky for a while.

One of the best movie experiences for me..

was coming in after hours to my movie theater and loading up Smokin Aces on our 35mm projector.

Very underrated film and not sure where the hate comes from.

Well, seemingly that guy goes back to his roots and rightfully so! Smokin Aces was an overrated Tarantino-Ripoff and A-Team a expensive, blown up mess.

The bloopers to Smokin' Aces are hilarious. Especially when Affleck tries to play pool.

Narc was awesome. Not really seeing a need for a sequel, but open to the idea i guess...

I think Joe Carnahan is a great director and have loved every one of his films from Narc to Smokin' Aces to The A-Team. The Grey looks great as well. It sucks The A-Team isn't getting a sequel because the first one was perfect in my opinion. Just a good, fun action movie that takes itself seriously, but not TOO much. The casting was damn perfect too and you know that ending was begging for a sequel.

Narc is a great movie and I was blown away by it the first time I saw it. It still holds

Narc is a great movie and I was blown away by it the first time I saw it. It still holds up very well today and even though it would be interesting to see where else the story would go, I just don't see it happening. Besides The A-Team, I don't want Joe to make any sequels. Just original stuff like The Grey and Narc.

I love NARC and I'm hoping The Grey turns out to be a good return to that intensity from him in Narc.

I could care less for A-Team. Aside from Sharlto Copley's wacky antics, it was instantly forgettable (and OH GOD WHAT SHIT CGI).

I'd love an A-Team sequel. A sequel in which they're actually SOLDIERS OF FORTUNE. The cast was terrific, the origin story just didn't cut it for me.

NARC,,,

... is a fu*king good film. I saw it for the first time in like six years a couple of months ago when it just appeared on Showtime something-or-other at 2:30 am. It came on and I just couldn't turn it off; it's so captivating and engrossing.
Now, about this sequel thing; I'd love to have another NARC film but with different characters or the logical one from the first film. Other than that, I don't think it would work. If Carnahan wants to work with Liotta for a third time then just do a new

If Carnahan wants to work with Liotta for a third time then just do a new film instead of trying to find a way to make another NARC film about his character.
In any case, Carnahan returning to the NARC Universe is a good idea. Well, in theory at least.

I'll believe it when I see it, Carnahan is becoming the guy that talks about future projects more than he actually works on future projects. I think his ego gets the better of him, he's constantly leaving because of some kind of disagreement. I've enjoyed all of his movies but I'd like to see more in the vain of Narc. I don't think we need a Narc sequel, that movie is damn near perfection. Why ruin it with a shitty sequel?
