Joe Carnahans wolf thriller The Grey gets green light

The A-Team was one of our guilty 2010 pleasures, and that was mostly thanks to director Joe Carnahan's assured grip on the daft action scenes.

This year, though, the director is getting back to his indie roots with thriller The Grey . A bare bones, white knuckle ride, it follows a group of roughnecks whose plane crashes in the wilds of Alaska.

There, they have to fight to survive against the resident wolves, who think they’ve just been delivered a three course meal.

A-Team star Liam Neeson heads up a cast that includes the less well-known Dallas Roberts ( Rubicon ), Frank Grillo ( My Soul To Take ), Dermot Mulroney ( Inhale ), Nonso Anozie ( RocknRolla ) and Joe Anderson ( The Crazies ).

As an interesting aside, The Grey ’s budget is about one fifth of the budget of A-Team . No giant air-borne tank fights this time, then.
