The first image from Joe Carnahan’s upcoming wolf-vs-man thriller The Grey has gone online. The film stars Liam Neeson, Dallas Roberts (Rubicon), James Badge Dale (Rubicon), Dermot Mulroney (Inhale), Frank Grillo (My Soul to Take), Nonso Anozie (RocknRolla), and Joe Anderson (The Crazies) as a group of oilmen who have crash landed in the hunting zone of a rogue pack of wolves in the Alaskan tundra. As for making the wolves come off as threatening, Carnahan says he plans to take the “I know that if you look at a wolf for too long, it’s just a [cuddly] malamute. So we’re doing the Jaws approach. They’re like the slasher in a slasher movie.”
Hit the jump to check out the image and for Carnahan’s explanation of why wolves should scare the bejeezus out of you.
The image comes from the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly and the folks over at Dread Central were good enough to scan it and upload it.
Last month, Carnahan explained to Deadline why wolves are a worthy adversary:
The wolves have a territorial range of 300 miles, and they will run you out if you cross that. If you’re within 30 miles of their den as is the case here, they will try to kill you. It’s simple arithmetic, but it creates an opportunity for one of those man vs. nature movies I love like Deliverance and Touching The Void.”
" I knew there was another movie to be made, and I had a sense of what it could be. There’s a story about friendship in here that can be really interesting, that also involves a road trip. Thematically, there was something interesting about that to me."
