Joe Carnahan's next to be The Grey?

01.19.2010
What's director Joe Carnahan have in store for us after he, Hannibal, and the gang get done blowing shit up? A few things. But namely, one project featuring man's battle against nature in the form of killer wolves.

That project is THE GREY, the script for which Carnahan's had in his back pocket for at least two years now. The director tells Cinematical: "There's a film that I wrote that I want to do called The Grey," he shared, "which is about a group of pipeline workers in Alaska flying back into civilization after being remote for a number of months. The 737 they're on goes down, and they begin to be hunted by a pack of rogue wolves. It's very much a man vs. nature adventure, existentialist kind of drama that I want to do. We're very, very close to it now."

But what of his other projects, such as his Pablo Escobar drama KILLING PABLO, or the adaptation of James Ellroy's WHITE JAZZ? Should THE GREY not find its funding, Carnahan says not to count those two out.

"If not [The Grey], Killing Pablo's always going to be up there for me," said Carnahan. "And White Jazz I'm still bound and determined to make that movie."

Determined no doubt because of James Ellroy himself, who at one point called the project "dead".

"I think there's a lot to be pessimistic about in the business right now because movies like that aren't getting green lit," Carnahan answered. "I think if we can do it for a number, and that number is gonna be...about $12, then we can make that movie. I think it's a tremendous script, and I think there's always a place for that kind of movie. Certainly there's still got to be a place for the L.A. Confidential sequel, I can't imagine that we've forgotten that completely."
Extra Tidbit: In 2002, Joe Carnahan directed THE HIRE: TICKER, one of a series of short films by BMW showcasing their various automobiles. Check it out RIGHT HERE.

I'm glad this guy is starting to get a little love. It seemed like he was getting massively hated on when Aces came out. I'd be there day one for any of those 3 movies.

So, after the A-Team, Carnahan has decided to make movies that are not very fun and will make no money. Great career move.

Rogue wolves? Pretty cool. The title's awfully bland, though.

I Dig Carnahan

I liked Narc, thought Aces was solid, really looking forward to A-Team. The Grey doesn't really sound like my cup of tea, but I applaud its originality.

But yeah, props to his dedication to seeing White Jazz through. I mean, seriously, who the fuck DOESN'T wanna see that??!

That BMW film is without a doubt my favorite short film ever. It shows such a slick ability to convey a cool story in short form and still deliver great character moments and action. Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane is another one worth checking out...smokin aces...not so much.
