I've always thought of Joe Carnahan as an under-appreciated talent. Films like Narc and The Grey have shown that the man knows how to write and direct tense, hard-hitting thrills. Even The A-Team I felt was unfairly beaten up by critics- which contributed to its unfortunate box office performance. To me, A-Team was unapologetically over the top, and not meant to be taken particularly seriously. It was a testosterone-fueled popcorn action extravaganza that, for some reason, critics expected to be something more. To borrow an analogy I used earlier this year, it was a slurpee.
Anyway, I think Carnahan may have found just the right vehicle for his skill set. It'll allow him to create the kind of macho action spectacle he likes to make, and give him access to characters and actors that have enough chemistry and star power to make the material fly. Not to mention, it's a »

We ride together, we die together. Bad Boys for Life.
That’s the official title of Joe Carnahan’s Bad Boys 3, the long-rumored action sequel that has simmered on the fringes of development for the better part of 13 years. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back as chest-beating detectives Lowery and Burnett, and the threequel recently staked out a January 12, 2018 release date.
It’s a slight delay to production, considering that Sony and Carnahan were initially eyeing up a primetime June 2017 window. Nevertheless, Carnahan (Smokin’ Aces, The A-Team, and The Grey) holds up Bad Boys for Life as “the strongest of the trilogy thus far.”
“Unless you’re Toy Story 3, usually third ones aren’t the strongest, and I think this one will be the strongest of the trilogy thus far. There’s a lot of funny shit in this movie. And there’s also a very mysterious, »

Don’t let its long-delayed production fool you—Bad Boys For Life is going to be the rare trilogy capper that outshines the preceding films. It’s going to change the way you look at Michael Bay movies, in part because Joe Carnahan has taken over for the bombastic director. That’s right, Joe Carnahan—the director of The A-Team adaptation, but also Narc. Yes, the man behind Smokin’ Aces and The Grey is combining those sensibilities to oversee Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s protracted cinematic reunion as Miami cops.
But, as Carnahan tells io9, he won’t be rushing the process, and not just because he’s currently filming Wheelman with Frank Grillo. The writer-director wants to make damn sure the latest entry in the series is up to the exacting standards of Bad Boys devotees. So, as a reward to fans who stuck with the project through »

At this rate, by the time they release the next Bad Boys, they’ll be Bad Men. Or even older. Variety is reporting that the third film in the buddy cops series, featuring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, has had its release pushed back from June 2017 to January 2018. The publication adds that the film will be titled Bad Boys for Life. The movie, which is slated to begin production in early 2017, will be directed by Joe Carnahan. Carnahan has previously directed such films as The A-Team and The Grey. He takes over behind the camera for Michael Bay, who directed the first two. By the time Bbfl is released, it will have been 22 years since the original film was out in theaters. The follow up, Bad Boys II, came out in 2003. The first Bad Boys grossed an unadjusted $141 million on just a $19 million budget. But the sequel didn’t do nearly as well. »

The Exhibitor Relations official Twitter account revealed that Sony Pictures has titled Bad Boys 3 as Bad Boys For Life, which will now open January 18th, 2018 instead of the initial June 17th, 2017 release date. The Grey and The A-team director Joe Carnahan is signed on to direct the threequel taking over directing duties from Michael Bay who helmed the last two Bad Boys films.

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are expected to return as the two have starred in the first Bad Boys film in 1995 which grossed a moderate $65 million opening weekend and Bad Boys II with a $46.5 million domestic opening. Smith currently has two projects before Bad Boys For Life, which includes the drama Collateral Beauty and the fantasy/thriller Bright with Suicide Squad director »

The title was confirmed by Exhibitor Relations, who also say the movie has been pushed back from the summer of 2017 to January 12th 2018.

Released in 1995, Bad Boys was directed by Michael Bay and was one of the first big screen performances of Will Smith before he exploded into mainstream appeal in Independence Day. Its sequel, Bad Boys II, was release in 2003 and made $273 million at the worldwide box office.

Bay Boys 3 has been pushed back to January 2018, but has also got itself a new title. The third film in the hit series will be entitled Bad Boys For Life and will reunite Will Smith and Martin Lawrence on screen for the first time since 2003.
The new title refers to Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s characters’ famous motto, “We ride together, we die together, bad boys for life.” Both actors will reprise their roles as Miami detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett.
The official release date is now January 12, 2018, so about 18 months to go until we see the boys in action once again. Shooting on the film will start probably in early 2017 to see the film make that big release. »

The Uncharted movie will probably enter production in early 2017.
Variety is reporting the news of Carnahan boarding the Uncharted movie project, but only as a screenwriter. According to the trade, Carnahan is only on board the project to write a new draft of the script, but they also quote him in saying that he would also love to direct it. However, there’s a problem as its shoot will potentially clash with the production of Bad Boys 3, which is set to shoot in the first part of 2017.
“In a perfect world I would love to do both, but right now, I’m only on board to write the script,” he said to the trade. »

Things have been dormant where the big screen version of the Uncharted videogame series has been concerned for a little while now. Sony has the film locked in for a release date of June 30th 2017 but the chances of it hitting that look incredibly slim.
That said, there’s been the first sign of progress in some time. Uncharted might just be edging closer.
Joe Carnahan, the director of Narc, The Grey and The A-Team movie, has now boarded the project as its new screenwriter. He’s the latest in a queue of people to try and bring Uncharted to the screen. It's unclear right now if his script will start from scratch.
Carnahan isn’t directing the movie as of yet, but according to Variety, that »
After days, months, years waiting for Sony to do some sort of Uncharted film, the multi-dimensional company has finally hired a writer for their movie adaptation of Uncharted! Come inside to find out more about Joe Carnahan!
Don't know Joe?
Well, there's a good chance you've seen his movies, or at least the ones he's worked on. Joe Carnahan's resume includes directing and writing The A-Team, Smokin' Aces, The Grey, and the upcoming Will Smith/Martin Lawrence reunion Bad Boys 3.
In an exclusive report by Variety, Carnahan talks about his excitement for joining the project and dispels rumors of directing the film.
“In a perfect world I would love to do both, but right now, I’m only on board to write the script,”

Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare Gallery 1 of 7
Click to skip
Come Thursday, July 21, Activision and developer Infinity Ward will be staging a presentation at San Diego Comic-Con about all things Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.
Clocking in at one hour in length, the studio is expected to cast light on “the creative process of crafting the campaign” at the heart of Infinite Warfare. Catapulting the Call of Duty series into the far-future, it’s understood that the creative team is looking to seminal war movies in the vein of Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down as inspiration.
We already know that Game of Thrones star Kit Harington will lend his likeness to the game’s chief villain, though Activision confirmed today that its collection of Hollywood talent also features Brian Bloom (The A-Team, Once Upon a Time in America), Jamie Gray Hyder (True Blood), David Harewood (Supergirl) and Jeffrey Nordling »

Way back in the hazy days of 2006, it was announced that Sylvester Stallone would be directing a remake of Charles Bronson’s classic revenge movie Death Wish, presumably stepping into the murderous boots of vigilante Paul Kersey. It was an interesting prospect, but Stallone eventually left the project. There was still life left in the remake though, and in 2012, it was resurrected once again, with Narc, Smoking Aces, and The A-Team’s Joe Carnahan on board to direct. Carnahan eventually departed, and Narcos director Gerado Naranjo cam on board. This, too, fell through, and for a few years, the project wandered aimlessly through Hollywood. It once again reared it’s head earlier this year, with Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, the directing duo behind the fantastic Israeli comedy horror Big Bad Wolves, being brought on to steer new Paul Kersey, Bruce Willis, on his revenge fuelled killing spree.

Mr. T, after all of this time, still pities the fools; and there's no case that he pities them greater than that of the 2010 film adaptation of The A-Team. In fact, Mr. T recently chalked up the film's lack of success to one, key factor that was missing from the film's arsenal: the power of the T himself. During a conversation with Uproxx, the 80's icon who originated the role of B.A. Baracus had some choice remarks to make about Joe Carnahan's allegedly tepid take on the classic television show. Most importantly, Mr. T's rant about the recasting of his memorable role is an incredible, and totally believable, theory as to why the project failed to catch. His hypothesis is as follows: The A-Team movie, people would even tell you: boy did we make a mistake trying to get somebody to replace Mr. T. There.s nothing »
In a splashy Cannes deal, Netflix has pre-bought worldwide rights to upcoming thriller.
In a deal negotiated here in Cannes by CAA and sales outfit The Solution Entertainment Group, streaming giant Netflix has taken world rights - and so will fully effectively fully finance - upcoming thriller Wheelman, which will star Captain America: Civil War actor Frank Grillo.
The significant multi-million dollar deal is one of the biggest to go down at what has been a relatively sedate market.
Production is scheduled to start in autumn with Jeremy Rush lined up to direct from his screenplay about a getaway driver who ends up in a scramble to survive after a bank robbery goes horribly wrong.
Driving a car full of money and with the fate of his family on the line, the wheelman must find out who betrayed him and »

If you wish more horror films came with onomatopoetic titles, I’ve got the movie for you.
When Kevin Smith released his now -notorious horror comedy Tusk, many reviewers took issue with the ludicrous premise in which a mad scientist takes it upon himself to transform a man into a walrus. Apparently none of these critics had ever seen Bernard L. Kowalski’s 1973 horror film Sssssss—new to Blu-ray from Scream Factory—because if they had, they might have recognized that the premise of Smith’s movie had been covered nearly 30 years earlier, only with a snake instead of a walrus. It is, to put it bluntly, not a very good movie. But it is a weird one, and sometimes “weird” counts.
