The thriller also stars Dallas Roberts, James Badge Dale, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Nonso Anozie, and Joe Anderson as a group of rough neck oil-riggers who become stranded in the frozen Alaskan tundra after their plane crashes. They eventually find themselves in the center of a roving and hungry wolf pack that they must fight off to survive.
Carnahan is prepared for a rough shoot, with his crew gearing up for some rather harsh weather conditions. The director said, "It gets to be 30 below, and when we went out the other day, I took off my hat to see how long I could last, and my skin was burning with frostbite in a little over a minute. In a way, it's great, because it beats the shit out of the cast and that suits the storyline."
Carnahan and his cast and crew are planning a forty day shoot.
