It took a few days, but finally confirmation has come that Open Road has acquired U.S. distribution rights to The Grey, Joe Carnahan’s thriller about a group of oil drillers whose plane crashes in Alaska, smack in the middle of the hunting grounds of a territorial rogue wolf pack.

From the Press Release: Open Road Films has acquired the U.S. rights to the highly anticipated, action-packed survival thriller THE GREY, directed by Joe Carnahan (A-Team, Smokin’ Aces, Narc) and starring Liam Neeson, from Liddell Entertainment. The announcement was made today by Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films and Mickey Liddell, CEO of Liddell Entertainment.

In THE GREY a group of oil-rig roughnecks are left stranded on the sub-arctic tundra after their plane experiences a complete mechanical failure and crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness. The survivors, battling mortal injuries, biting cold and ravenous hunger, are relentlessly hunted and pursued by a vicious pack of rogue wolves. Liam Neeson plays the leader of the team, which also features Frank Grillo (upcoming Warrior and Lay the Favorite), Dermot Mulroney (Burn After Reading, About Schmidt), Dallas Roberts (“The Good Wife,” 3:10 To Yuma), Joe Anderson (Across the Universe), James Badge Dale (upcoming World War Z, The Conspirator, HBO’s “The Pacific”), Nonso Anozie (upcoming Conan The Barbarian, Atonement, RocknRolla).

Ortenberg stated, “Joe Carnahan has done a phenomenal job of bringing this riveting story of the human condition to life. Liam Neeson’s performance is brilliant, and I am thrilled to be working with Joe – and to be back in business with Mickey Liddell – on the release of the film.”

“Tom Ortenberg basically started me in this business, so to be working with him and his team at Open Road offers that rare thrill of reteaming with an old friend,” stated Carnahan. “I couldn’t engineer a better partnership for bringing THE GREY to moviegoers, guns blazing.”

Liddell stated, “Working with Joe Carnahan, Jules Daly and Scott Free was an incredible experience under extreme conditions. I would be happy to work with them anytime and anywhere but hopefully in warmer weather. I worked with Tom last year and saw his passion for film. We’re fortunate to be partnering with such a seasoned veteran in the business, and I know he’s going to do an incredible job with this film.”

THE GREY is produced by Jules Daly, Joe Carnahan, Ridley Scott and Mickey Liddell. Executive producers are Tony Scott and Jennifer Hilton as well as Jim Seibel, Bill Johnson and Marc Butan of Inferno Entertainment.

Part of the deal was that The Grey will be released before year-end so look for more we’re sure sooner rather than later.

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You

Published

on

Developer Storymind Entertainment have released the first gameplay trailer for My Eyes On You, and it looks like we’re in for something completely truly unique, in terms of both visuals and narrative.

My Eyes On You takes place in a near future version of Chicago, with FBI agent Jordan Adalien hunting an elusive serial killer known only as the Man in the Red Mask. The decisions you make will also dictate whether the game’s plot stays closer to reality or heads in a supernatural direction, so you’d better be careful what you wish for. Whilst searching for clues will be one of your main areas of focus, combat will also play an important role, too.

The trailer for My Eyes On You certainly gives off a strong Blade Runner 2049 vibe, so if that’s your thing, you’re probably in for a great time. It will be available on PC and consoles, although a release date has not yet been confirmed.
