Neeson will play Ottoway, a hunter hired to protect a camp of oil workers in the Alaskan tundra. But on a flight back to Anchorage, the plane crashes and the crew of drillers are besieged by an aggressive, intelligent pack of grey wolves.
The screenplay by Carnahan and Ian Jeffers is very much about man versus his environment, as the characters battle to survive the wolves picking off the weak and the elements, like hypothermia. But there also exists an internal struggle with primal instincts and faith that makes the story more complex than the expected “will they make it?” plot.
It’s an exceptional script, especially one scene that reads like an homage to Jurassic Park as the men »

Actor Liam Neeson ("Darkman") is in talks to re-team with "A-Team" director Joe Carnahan for the 'survival drama' "The Grey", first reported by Sneak Peek in February, based on a screenplay by Carnahan and Ian Mackenzie Jeffers, who wrote the original short story.

Joe Carnahan and Liam Neeson, sounds like a familiar combination doesn't it? That's because the two teamed up to make "The A-Team" that was released earlier this summer to get not-so-great results box office-wise. Despite that, it's not stopping Carnahan from trying to get Neeson back on another one of his films. He's in the middle of casting for "The Grey", a survival drama that he's making and has Neeson in mind for the lead role. "The Grey" is co-written by Ian Jeffers and Carnahan, focusing on a plane that goes down in Alaska with a man (Neeson) and his oil drilling team who find themselves struggling to survive in the wild. The men come under attack by large, vicious, aggressive wolves who see the humans as intruders who must be killed.Since "Selma" is currently on hiatus at the moment and Neeson's already filmed his role in "Unknown White Male »
Neeson will play the lead of an oil drilling team who find themselves struggling to survive in the Alaskan wild after their plane goes down. They're soon hunted by aggressive wolves intent on killing the human intruders.

I generally don’t have very nice things to say about Liam Neeson. However, his representation of Hannibal Smith for Joe Carnahan‘s The A-Team was solidly entertaining, perfectly encapsulating the spirit of the TV show character. It seems now the two will be working together once more. THR is reporting that Neeson is in negotiations to star in Carnahan‘s The Grey.
The Grey, penned by Carnahan and Ian Jeffers is a survival story about a plane crash and the subsequent antics in the Alaskan wild. A team of oil workers, presumably led by Neeson‘s character, must fend of wild animals and the weather (it is Alaska, after all).
Bradley Cooper was supposed to star before negotiations fell through. I am not sure what kind of role translates very well between Cooper and Liam Neeson but it really seems like producers Scott Free, Jules Daly, and Bill Johnson »

In “Grey,” Neeson leads a group of pipeline workers in the Alaska wilderness after their plane crashes. Relentless to make it home to the woman he loves, Neeson and co. must deal with a pack of wolves along the way.

Empire Online had the news.
Liam Neeson is in negotiations to re-team with his A-Team director Joe Carnahan for the survival drama The Grey, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap. Carnahan co-wrote the screenplay with Ian Mackenzie Jeffers, who wrote the original short story that the script is based on. The story follows a team of pipeline workers who struggle to survive in the Alaskan wild after their plane crashes there. The men come under attack from a pack of vicious wolves who view the humans as intruders who must be killed. Neeson will play the team leader, who aches to reunite with the woman he loves.

It looks like Liam Neeson had a blast making The A-Team with Joe Carnahan, because he’s apparently in negotiations to join the director’s next project, survival drama The Grey.The Wrap reports that Neeson is close to locking in a deal to play the team leader to a group of pipeline workers who become stranded in the Alaska wilderness after their plane crashes.Just trying to stay alive in the harsh conditions is bad enough, but then they come under attack from a pack of dangerous wolves who decide that the humans are intruding on their territory and must be destroyed (kinda harsh towards wolves, which aren't that bad usually). We’d make some joke here about Neeson employing a particular set of skills, but we know we swore to lay off that one. What we do know is he’ll have a reason to live – he’s »
Bradley Cooper is 35. His A-Team co-star, Liam Neeson is 58. Their A-Team director Joe Carnahan (41) finds Neeson to be a perfectly suitable replacement for Cooper in his survival drama, The Grey. This isn’t the most drastic retooling Hollywood has ever done (a pre-Jolie Salt was originally intended for Tom Cruise), but I find it significant. Maybe in return, Cooper can fill in for Neeson on Steven Spielberg’s Abraham Lincoln biopic.
Per Heat Vision, the script from Carnahan and Ian Jeffers (Death Sentence) begins with a plane crash in Alaska: “A man (Neeson) and his oil drilling team find themselves struggling to survive in the wild. The men come under attack by large, vicious, aggressive wolves who see the humans as intruders who must be killed.” Though Cooper may have the vitality of youth on his side, I actually buy Neeson more as a badass wolf killer. I’m sure »

After leading the infamous A-Team in the big screen adaptation of the classic TV series, Heat Vision reports Liam Neeson will be leading a team of a different sort in director Joe Carnahan's (also of Narc, Smokin' Aces) next project The Grey. Described as "existentialist kind of drama" which Carnahan wrote himself, the story follows a group of pipeline workers in Alaska flying back into civilization after working for number of months. The 737 they're on goes down, and they're then hunted by a pack of rogue wolves. Neeson replaces another member of The A-Team, actor Bradley Cooper, who was previously slated to star in the same role. Ridley and Tony Scott are producing via their Scott Free banner and writer Ian Jeffers also helped write the script with Carnahan. The project is yet another in the recent line of films to place the 58 year-old actor in intense, action-packed »

Evidently, there is going to be a plan B for director Joe Carnahan and Bradley Cooper. Â According to Variety, the two, who just finished a collaboration on this coming Summer’s The A-team, are in negotiations to re-team for The Grey for Ridley and Tony Scott’s Scott Free. Â The film would serve as a return of sorts to Carnahan directing one of his own scripts, this one a co-writing job with Death Sentence scribe Ian Jeffers.
The script concerns a group of survivors of a plane crash. Â After crash landing in the wilderness, the group finds themselves hunted by a pack of wolves. Â The screenplay is based on a short story by Jeffers and would be a bit of a change of pace for Carnahan who, until now, has handled strictly action fare.
The thriller looks to have a $34-million budget, and, in looking at »
