Joe Carnahan's profanity laced email to MGM President regarding the Death Wish remake is priceless

Oh, Joe Carnahan , what are we going to do with you? The notoriously outspoken filmmaker has long been a fan favorite thanks to his films NARC, THE A-TEAM, SMOKIN' ACES, and THE GREY which all elevate action movies above the rest of the crop.
