If all had gone to plan, The Grey helmer Joe Carnahan would be directing a gritty reboot of Daredevil just about now, but that fell through when Fox decided to drop the character and allow it to return to Marvel. While he’s got a remake of Death Wish up his sleeve, Collider reports that he may well slot in Stretch before then.
Carnahan himself tweeted a couple of days ago, ‘Thinking if ‘Death Wish’ isn’t next, I might knock out a 3 million dollar movie with my pal Jason Blum…stripped down, bare bones basics’, and presumably Stretch is this movie. Patrick Wilson is set to star and it’s an action thriller, but that’s about all we know about the movie.
Jason Blum is the Paranormal Activity producer who’s become a one-man powerhouse of low budget genre flicks, backing the likes of Insidious, Sinister and The Lords Of Salem.
