The exciting pairing of “The Purge” and “Captain America” actor Frank Grillo and filmmaker Joe Carnahan yielded the much acclaimed survival drama “The Grey” several years ago.
The pair have since joined forces to create their own production company, War Party, which aims to produce three to four action-centric films a year. It will also co-develop a slate of other projects including some already in the works.
One of those will be the Netflix original “Wheelman” which quickly sold out a majority of its territories at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Carnahan is currently attached to direct the third “Bad Boys” film and recently signed on to pen a new script for the film adaptation of of Sony’s “Uncharted” game series. Grillo’s name has already been suggested by fans as a potential candidate to play treasure hunter Nathan Drake in the latter.
