Wahlberg arming up for 2 Guns
Mark Wahlberg is in negotiations to star in new crime thriller 2 Guns.
The Universal film, adapted from a graphic novel, follows a drug enforcement agent and an undercover naval intelligence office who end up trailing each other after they both steal mob money.
It is not known what part Hollywood star Mark is in talks to play, according to Variety.
David O Russell was due to direct, but has left the film due to shooting conflicts with The Silver Linings Playbook.
The 2 Guns film is now looking for a new director. Vince Vaughn's name had previously been linked to the project, but it is not known if he is still set to star opposite Mark in one of the leading roles.
