boss level release

Boss Level, the latest from Narc and The Grey director Joe Carnahan, has been sitting around waiting for a distributor since 2019. The sci-fi action flick that stars Frank Grillo and Mel Gibson was originally scheduled to arrive in August 2019, but it missed its release date and has been without a home ever since Entertainment Studios Motion Pictures, who purchased the film in 2018, dropped it. Now, Boss Level will have a second chance, thanks to Hulu. The streaming service just signed an eight-figure deal for United States distribution rights to the film.

Boss Level

Have you heard of Boss Level? It wouldn’t be surprising if you haven’t because it’s a movie produced by the now-defunct MoviePass that doesn’t yet have a release date. But this is an action-packed new movie from Smokin’ Aces and The Grey director Joe Carnahan that follows Frank Grillo as a retired special forces veteran trapped in a never-ending time loop resulting in his death every day. Instead of taking this scenario lying down, this guy has developed an incredible mastery of his skills as a soldier and how to utilize the world around him. It certainly sounds interesting and there’s a little bit of early buzz that indicates this movie is a hell of a lot of fun. Read More »

Leo from Toledo Movie

Mel Gibson and Frank Grillo already teamed up with The A-Team director Joe Carnahan for a sci-fi action thriller called Boss Level. You haven’t seen that movie yet (pictured above) because it’s still in post-production, but apparently the experience for all of them was a positive one, because they’re getting back together for another movie.

Leo from Toledo will have Mel Gibson and Frank Grillo back in front of the camera for a fairly typical action thriller premise that will have Joe Carnahan returning to direct. So what’s the story about? Read More »

Joe Carnahan interview

Joe Carnahan has once again produced a slick crime movie with El Chicano.Stunt coordinator Ben Hernandez Bray, who worked on The Grey and performed stunts in a long list of major films, co-wrote the script with Carnahan and makes his directorial debut with the Latino-led superhero movie. It’s a $6 million movie that, like Carnahan’s work, stretches every dollar of its budget.

It’s a superhero movie crossed with a gritty crime film, set in East Los Angeles. Carnahan’s is clearly pleased the film will get its due and play in theaters, especially after studios were resistant and sometimes tone def. When we recently spoke to Carnahan, he told us about how cathartic the project was, how the headache of Bad Boys III led him to El Chicano, his advice for first-time filmmakers, and more.

the raid remake

When the scrappy Indonesian martial arts thriller The Raid: Redemption became an instant action classic in 2011, it seemed inevitable that a Hollywood remake would be on its way. Lo and behold, Frank Grillo soon signed on to star in The Raid remake, and director Joe Carnahan signed on three years later. But that was in 2017, and since then, we’ve heard nary a peep about The Raid remake.

But don’t worry, Carnahan is here to assure us that The Raid remake is still happening, in a new interview where he reveals the plot details of his English-language “reimagining” of Gareth Evans‘ hit film.

Why Joe Carnahan left Bad Boys 3

Boss Level

The classic Bill Murray comedy Groundhog Day is the most famous movie example of a time loop scenario in which a character must relive the same day over and over again, but there have been plenty of others since 1993. The concept seems to be back in fashion in Hollywood these days, with films like Edge of Tomorrow, Before I Fall, Naked, and Happy Death Day putting their own characters through a repeating hellscape in order to teach them a lesson about themselves. And now a new movie called Boss Level will use that same formula.
