In August, Mark Wahlberg joined the comic adaptation of 2 Guns just as The Fighter director David O. Russell was dropping out. Looks like Wahlberg will reunite with his Contraband director instead.
Variety reports that Baltasar Kormákur is in negotiations to direct 2 Guns which follows a DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer who separately go undercover to steal mob money while simultaneously investigating each other. While not the exact same plot, Contraband, as revealed in the movie's first trailer, sees Wahlberg brought back into the world of smuggling in order to save his family. Reportedly, the trailer got good online buzz, which helped convince the studio to hire the Icelandic director. more about 2 Guns >> Posted 10.04.11 by Ryan
