Fans of Joe Carnahan's breakout surprise hit The Grey will have to wait a while longer to see his next movie. Indie comedy-actioner Stretch has been dropped by its distributor, Universal Pictures, just two months before it was supposed to be released, according to THR.
The studio dropped the Patrick Wilson-led film from its schedule and has no current plans to give it a new date anytime soon. Meanwhile, producer Jason Blum has been searching for a new distributor, but no luck just yet.
So while Stretch idles and waits for a new release date, Carnahan's work behind the camera can still be enjoyed – on the small screen. He's directed three episodes of NBC's hit new show The Blacklist, and he also directed the pilot of upcoming A&E series Those Who Kill, starring Chloe Sevigny and James D'Arcy as detectives hunting serial killers.
A new three-minute trailer has just been released. Those Who Kill is based on the Danish show of the same name (Den som dræber), and will premiere on A&E on March 3rd. Thanks to Dread Central for the embed.
