Carnahan wants Grillo for his action sci-fi thriller.

According to Twitch, Joe Carnahan has gained the backing of 20th Century Fox for his passion project ‘Contiune.’

Described as action spin on ‘Groundhog Day,’ the story follows a former soldier forced to re-live the same day over and over while on the run from assassins trying to kill him for reasons unknown.

Carnahan is reportedly looking to reunite with Frank Grillo, who recently worked with the filmmaker on the survival thriller ‘The Grey.’
