'Grey' director Joe Carnahan in talks for 'Sugar Bandits'

Joe Carnahan has entered talks to direct Sugar Bandits.

The Grey director is in line to adapt Chuck Hogan's novel Devils in Exile for Universal Pictures.

The film centres around Iraq War veteran Neal Maven, who is facing a life of menial jobs in Boston.

He teams up with some other soldiers to break up a gang of local drug dealers and steal their money.

Hogan wrote The Town - on which Ben Affleck's 2010 film was based on - as well as teaming up with Guillermo del Toro on vampire tale The Strain.

Carnahan was most recently attached to 20th Century Fox's abandoned Daredevil reboot and a failed attempt to remake Death Wish.

He is also developing movies based on vampire comic Undying Love, Mark Bowden's Killing Pablo and Mark Millar's Nemesis.

Marc Shmuger and Tom McNulty will produce Sugar Bandits through Global Produce.
