While The A-Team was a modest success for Joe Carnahan, it was his return to a smaller budget with the survival tale The Grey this year that gave him a healthy career boost. Although the director has yet to decide what his next project may be, he’s been carefully lining up the options and tonight we’ve got another.
According to Deadline, Carnahan will be taking over the previous Alexandre Aja project Undying Love over at Warner Bros. After battling wolves, this project is based on Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman‘s graphic novel (with a script originally written by them) and will see Carnahan dealing with the world of vampires. The helmer is taking a pass on the script for the story that follows an “an ex-soldier who falls for a vampire, though in order to be with her, he must taken on her creator, who is protected by an army of mobsters in the Hong Kong underworld.”
It’s certainly a departure for Carnahan and the helmer agrees, saying the locale of China, “along with mysticism and swordplay” brings “a lot of potential.” With the vampire genre growing more tired with each passing entry, hopefully Carnahan can provide some new life — but now we simply have to wait until he actually decides on what he’ll do next.
Would you like to see Carnahan direct this project next?
