Open Road Scores “The Grey” Rights

Open Road Films has scored the distribution rights to Joe Carnahan’s new survival drama “The Grey” though no potential release date has yet been set says Deadline.

A thirty-minute demo reel was shopped around Los Angeles last week and generated interest at Warner Bros. Pictures, Summit Entertainment, Lionsgate, The Weinstein Company, and FilmDistrict.

Liam Neeson stars as the leader of an oil-rigging team who must fight to survive in the brutal Alaska wilderness during winter after their plane crashes. They also must fend off a rabid pack of wolves.

Dallas Roberts, James Badge Dale, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Nonso Anozie, and Joe Anderson also star.
