Open Road Films has announced that director Joe Carnahan's latest movie, The Grey, will finally be released on January 27, 2012. The Grey is part of the inaugural slate of movies for the distribution company.
The action-packed survival thriller reunites Carnahan with his The A-Team star Liam Neeson, and may open in New York and Los Angeles before the end of the year to allow for a possible Oscar campaign for Neeson's performance. Ironically, Neeson's role was originally cast with Bradley Cooper, but after Cooper dropped out, Neeson took over. Bummer for Bradley, but the synopsis does sound like the actors had to withstand a great deal of cold weather (which makes it harder to keep your abs tanned). synopsis and cast for The Grey >>
