A couple of weeks back it was reported that Joe Carnahan would be following up his work on The A-Team movie with a new thriller called The Grey (writer unknown) about survivors of plane crash who are hunted by a pack of wolves in the wilderness. Variety is reporting today that Carnahan will also be reteaming with A-Team actor Bradley Cooper for The Grey, casting him as one of the survivors. Ridley and Tony Scott are also producing this through Scott Free. If you've seen Adam Green's Frozen, you've already seen a movie with vicious wolves in it, but this is probably going to be much different and it sounds pretty damn cool.
Carnahan explains the story better in our original update: "[The Grey] 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." I'm starting to like Bradley Cooper more and more with every movie (except All About Steve and Valentine's Day). I don't know how many other survivors there will be with Cooper, but it'll be great to see him challenge himself with this role. It also sounds like he's trying to match his friend Ryan Reynold's decision to take on Buried. Stay tuned!
