Liam Neeson Set to Re-Team with Joe Carnahan for 'The Grey'
After leading the infamous A-Team in the big screen adaptation of the classic TV series, Heat Vision reports Liam Neeson will be leading a team of a different sort in director Joe Carnahan's (also of Narc, Smokin' Aces) next project The Grey. Described as "existentialist kind of drama" which Carnahan wrote himself, the story follows a group of pipeline workers in Alaska flying back into civilization after working for number of months. The 737 they're on goes down, and they're then hunted by a pack of rogue wolves. Neeson replaces another member of The A-Team, actor Bradley Cooper, who was previously slated to star in the same role.
Ridley and Tony Scott are producing via their Scott Free banner and writer Ian Jeffers also helped write the script with Carnahan. The project is yet another in the recent line of films to place the 58 year-old actor in intense, action-packed situations since his ass-kicking role in Taken. At least Carnahan is having an easier time getting this project together than his previously mentioned but never produced projects like White Jazz and Killing Pablo. Though Carnahan may not be the most talented filmmaker (in my humble opinion), I had a great time watching The A-Team, and The Grey sounds like it will be an intense story of man vs. nature.
