Even though The A-Team wasn’t a runaway hit like many of us thought it would be, it didn’t sour the relationship between director Joe Carnahan and star Liam Neeson. The duo plans on working together again on another project according to Deadline. The film is called The Grey, and it’s a thriller set against the backdrop of the Alaskan tundra. Just thinking about that makes us shiver!
The Grey was recently green-lit and is expected to start production next week with a cast led by Neeson that features Dallas Roberts, James Badge Dale, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Nonso Anozie, and Joe Anderson. The story will follow an unlucky group that “gets stranded by a plane crash right in the hunting zone of a pack of rogue wolves on the frozen Alaskan tundra.” If that doesn’t spell terror we don’t know what does.
The shoot will take place in Vancouver, and the director thinks the frigid weather will help the cast deliver more believable performances. He said, “In a way, it’s great, because it beats the shit out of the cast and that suits the storyline.” Filming will last for about 40 days and it will follow a typical indie style schedule. Carnahan admits that he hasn’t experienced anything like it since he worked on 2002′s Narc.
What do you think of Neeson and Carnahan reuniting for The Grey? What do you think of the premise?
