    Mark Millar Says 'Nemesis' Moving Ahead With Joe Carnahan Directing

    The ratio of truth to... exagerrated truth with Mark Millar doesn't give the kind of odds you'd want to put any kind of significant money on. But every now and then he's right, and he's at least entertaining to a certain degree, but as always, take this with a grain of salt with a si...

    Watch: Joe Carnahan's '70s-Soaked NC-17 & PG-13 Sizzle Reels For 'Daredevil'

    What could have been... With the rights to "Daredevil" now headed back to Marvel this fall after the clock ran out on Fox, it's likely this is the most we're ever going to see of what a grittier, more adult take on the superhero might have been. Director Joe Carnahan wasn't kid...

    Fans of Scandanavian drama (or at least American remakes thereof) take heart. While AMC axed "The Killing" this afternoon, A&E is moving ahead with another murderously titled show in "Those Who Kill," and have brought on Joe Carnahan to help get it off the ground.

    Very occasionally, the trades do something known in the journalism trade as "burying the lede" -- dropping a hint of a separate story in a piece about something else entirely, which can often be passed over at first glance. As it turns out, there's been a couple of examples of thi...

    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...
