Joe Carnahan Reteaming With Patrick Wilson For New Action Movie Stretch
Since releasing the truly great drama The Grey in January, director Joe Carnahan has managed to get a lot of work done in 2012. First he announced that he was developing a remake of the Charles Bronson classic Death Wish (with the story moving from New York to Los Angeles); then it was announced that he had brought one of his passion projects - an action/thriller take on Groundhog Day called Continue - over to 20th Century Fox; and then it was most recently reported that he was in the middle of developing a new take on the comic book superhero Daredevil, but that project got the axe when the studio couldn't act fast enough and the rights reverted to Marvel Studios.
But guess what? He's still not done.
ScreenDaily reports that Carnahan is now developing a new project titled Stretch, which is being produced by Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions (the studio behind the Paranormal Activity movies). Details about the project are slim, however what is known is that it will be an action movie and that it will star Patrick Wilson. The project presents a reunion, as Carnahan previously worked with Wilson on The A-Team, the last action movie that he directed. The project is currently being sold on the American Film Market.
Since starring in both Young Adult and The Ledge in 2011, Wilson has kept it fairly low key in 2012, keeping to the small screen on the show A Gifted Man and making a very tiny cameo appearance in Ridley Scott's Prometheus. He also spent part of the year reuniting with Insidious director James Wan for Conjuring, which will be out on July 19, 2013.
