Joe Carnahan Interview boss level

There are certain directors who could easily be a character in one of their own movies. Joe Carnahan is one of those filmmakers. He’s got an energy and personality that would feel right at home in his more fast-talking, adrenaline-fueled movies. Of course, Carnahan starred in his first movie, Blood, Guts, Bullets and Octane, and appeared in his bombastic popcorn movie The A-Team, as well as his one night-gone-wrong in Los Angeles film, Stretch. 

When you talk to the director, you hear the same voice we hear in his work, including his latest movie, Boss LevelIt’s an action movie set in a time loop in which Carnahan gets to kill his latest movie’s producer, Frank Grillo, over and over again. Last year, the director behind Ticker reunited with Grillo for the already-in-the-can, Copshop. Recently, we talked to the filmmaker about his latest movie, both his madcap and dramatic work, streaming, and collaborating with Grillo and, controversially, Mel Gibson.

Boss Level Trailer

Last year, Hulu gave us a charming romance with a time loop twist in the form of Palm Springs, one of our favorite movies of 2020. This year, director Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team) is mixing up the time loop formula at Hulu in another way by giving us big, brutal action sequences in Boss Level.

Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Purge: Anarchy) stars in Boss Level as a special forces agent who is being forced to relive the day of his murder over and over again. Sick of being blown up, stabbed, dragged, set on fire, shot and decapitated, he finally gets some outside help in order to survive so he can stop this endless loop of death and save his ex-wife (Naomi Watts). But he’ll have to face Mel Gibson in order to do it. Watch the Boss Level trailer below. Read More »

boss level release date

Joe Carnahan‘s action film Boss Level has been waiting since 2019 for someone to release it, and now Hulu has finally set a date: March 5. The time loop film features Frank Grillo, Mel Gibson, and Naomi Watts, and follows a former special forces agent who keeps repeating the same day: the day of his murder. Which means this is less like Groundhog Day, and more like Happy Death Day.

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.

lethal weapon 5 update mel gibson

Mel Gibson, a great actor and not-so-great human being, has decided to remind us that Lethal Weapon 5 is still a very real possibility. The potential sequel to the action franchise has been running hot and cold for a few years now, with word surfacing in 2017 that original director Richard Donner was working with Gibson and co-star Danny Glover to get the film off the ground. By 2018, though, Donner changed his tune and said that the project was probably dead. But in January of this year, producer Dan Lin said that the sequel was going to happen. And now, Gibson seems to be affirming that.

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 »

fatman walton goggins

Cinema was invented for one reason, and one reason only: to see Walton Goggins attempt to murder Santa Claus. Goggins is set to star in Fatman, a dark action-comedy that will see him playing a hitman hired to bump off Santa (who will be played by Mel Gibson). Gibson’s casting here is likely to turn many people off, but you have to admit: a movie where Walton Goggins is hired to murder Kris Kringle sounds pretty entertaining.
