  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Brother of screenwriter [[Performer~P535728~Matthew Michael Carnahan~matthewmichaelcarnahan]], Joe Carnahan has contributed to the film world primarily as a director. After getting his start in the mid-'90s working in the promotional department of a California television station, [[Performer~P535728~Carnahan~matthewmichaelcarnahan]] produced several short films and generated a certain amount of excitement within the independent film community for his series of feature-length action flicks: [[Feature~V160494~Blood, Guts, Bullets & Octane~bloodgutsbulletsoctane]], [[Feature~V260313~Narc~narc]], and [[Feature~V334253~Smokin' Aces~smokinaces]]. He was one of the many people in talks to direct one of Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible sequels, but landed his biggest box office hit to that point with 2010's big-screen adaptation of The A-Team. He reteamed with that film's star Liam Neeson two years later for the survival adventure drama The Grey. ~ Tracie Cooper, Rovi
