Marc Streitenfeld is scoring the upcoming action drama The Grey. The movie is directed by Joe Carnahan and star Liam Neeson, Dermot Mulroney, Dallas Roberts, JoeAnderson and James Badge Dale. The film is based on a short story by Ian Jeffers and centers on a group of oil-rig roughnecks who are left stranded on the sub-arctic tundra after their plane experiences a complete mechanical failure and crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness. The survivors, battling mortal injuries, biting cold and ravenous hunger, are relentlessly hunted and pursued by a vicious pack of rogue wolves. The project is produced by Ridley and Tony Scott, as well as Carnahan, Jules Daly (The A-Team) and Mickey Liddell (Go, Everwood). Streitenfeld has previously scored Ridley Scott’s last four directorial efforts, as well as last year’s drama Welcome to the Rileys produced by Scott. Carnahan’s previous musical collaborators include Alan Silvestri (The A-Team), Clint Mansell (Smokin’ Aces) and Cliff Martinez (Narc). Open Road Films has recently acquired domestic rights for The Grey. A release in 2012 is expected.
