EW (via Shocktillyoudrop) have published the first image from The Grey, an upcoming survival movie that features a pack of wolves that will apparently act like Jason Voorhees style slashers.

The Grey is currently being directed by Joe Carnahan and will reunite him with his The A-Team star Liam Neeson. The image depicts Neeson’s motley crew of stalkees as they trudge through the Alaskan tundra.

Co-starring Dallas Roberts, James Badge Dale, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Nonso Anozie and Joe Anderson, The Grey finds a group of oil-rig workers who have crashed in wolf-infested territory.

Carnahan, who is going back to basics after the big budget madness of The A-Team, spoke to the magazine of his genre approach.

”I’m a big dog guy. I know that if you look at a wolf for too long, it’s just a [cuddly] malamute. So we’re doing the Jaws approach. They’re like the slasher in a slasher movie.”

The Grey is currently scheduled for a 2012 release.
