    Joe Carnahan To Write & Direct Remake Of 'Death Wish'

    Joe Carnahan must be feeling vindicated this morning. The writer/director broke out with 2002's terrific, muscular cop thriller "Narc," but hasn't had a lot of joy since: his 2006 sub-Guy Ritchie action-comedy "Smokin' Aces" wasn't beloved by many, while a director-for-hire gig on the would-be-tentp...

    The Grey—movie review

    Liam Neeson is one of those actors who validates a film by his mere presence in it. Sure enough, he brings gravitas and credibility to this survival thriller set in the snowy wilderness of Alaska. I wish he’d also brought along a better script.

    Joe Carnahan Says 'The Grey' Will Head Back To Theaters For An Oscar Qualifying Run In October

    Writer/director Joe Carnahan has no regrets. The twists and turns many up-and-coming directors face during their first brush with a big budget studio project could leave anyone bitter and jaded. Instead, Carnahan took his ill-fated experiences on “Mission: Impossible III” (which was ultimately direc...

    Joe Carnahan Wants Liam Neeson To Play Blake Morrow In 'Nemesis'; Old 'Dark Knight Rises' Rumor Gains New Heat

    To call Oscar winner Liam Neeson's recent surge of genre material something new would be to forget that many years ago, he starred in Sam Raimi's "Darkman" as the titular hero, and also suited up for George Lucas' "Star Wars" prequel trilogy. The only thing that has c...

    Why Brave "The Grey"? Millions of Dollars, Says Liam Neeson (Video Interview)

    What would entice Liam Neeson and director Joe Carnahan to endure the camera-and-butt-freezing conditions of a frigid shoot in British Columbia?  “Well, it was the millions I was paid,” Neeson laughed, which has to be one of those jokey answers with more than a hint of truth. T...

    Review: 'The Grey' Pits Stock Characters Against Cartoon Wolves

    It wasn’t long ago that Liam Neeson was considered a prestigious name in film. Though his early career was peppered with genre roles, “Schindler’s List” put him on the map as an awards-friendly leading man. But in the past few years, Neeson has reinvented himself once again, into the hardest of men,...

    Joe Carnahan Says New Project 'Continue' Is Like A 'Groundhog Day' Action Movie

    After "The A-Team" failed to connect with critics and audiences, Joe Carnahan very literally went out in the wild. And now, he's back with a completely different cinematic animal in "The Grey," his gritty thriller led by Liam Neeson about a group of Alaskan pipeline workers f...

    Exclusive: Joe Carnahan Says Long-Gestating ‘Killing Pablo’ Likely Next, Hopes ‘White Jazz' Will Follow

    It seems as though we’ve been waiting forever (a decade to be exact) for Joe Carnahan to deliver on the promise set forth with 2002’s “Narc.” It’s not that the two films he’s directed since (“Smokin’ Aces,” “The A-Team”) were necessarily bad, but rather that Carnahan seemed to demonstrate with “Narc...

    Joe Carnahan Says The 'The Grey' Is Almost Locked, Warns "Haters Prepare. Your Hopes Will Be Dashed"

    There's no doubt that we've been pretty hard on Joe Carnahan. The helmer burst onto the scene with the gritty cop drama "Narc" but squandered that goodwill with the outlandish "Smokin' Aces" and the bloated "The A-Team." However, Carnahan's next effort "The Grey" definitely looks like a step back in...
