It will probably be someone more low pro. But I'd have to give it more thought...
Like your first three ideas, don't know about Carnahan. I've really enjoyed his earlier work, but his first foray into blockbuster cinema ("A-Team") didnt' really work as I imagined.
I've always been interested in what Vincenzo Natali ("Cube", "Cypher", "Splice") could do with more commercial fare / comic book movies.
