After departing Death Wish earlier this year, Joe Carnahan appears to have found his next project. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the The Grey director is in talks to write and direct an adaptation of Chuck Hogan's novel Devils in Exile. The film version will be titled Sugar Bandits.

Published in 2010, the novel is officially described as follows:

When Neal Maven and a crew of fellow Iraq War veterans begin ripping off Boston-area drug dealers for profit, their lives are quickly put into jeopardy. As Maven’s involvement deepens, two worrisome things happen: he begins to suspect that their leader has a sinister ulterior motive, and he lusts after the leader’s girl—a tough former model with a drug problem. As the rip-off jobs get riskier, Maven and his crew are soon pursued by both a smart federal DEA agent and by a pair of psychopathic Jamaican hit men on a drug lords’ payroll. When everything goes bad—and it goes very bad—Maven embarks on a one-man crusade to right the wrongs in which he unwittingly participated. Not everyone will survive his crusade, and Maven himself may not live to see the final outcome….

Tom McNulty and Marc Shmuger are attached to produce with Richard Abate executive producing.
