Mark Wahlberg in Negotiations for 2 Guns

by SuperHeroHype

August 10, 2011

SuperHeroHype has confirmed that Mark Wahlberg is in negotiations to star in Universal Pictures' 2 Guns, based on the graphic novel by Steven Grant published by BOOM! Studios.

Featuring a script by Blake Masters, the film will be produced by Marc Platt and Adam Siegel will oversee the project for Marc Platt Productions. Andrew Cosby and Ross Richie will produce for BOOM! Studios.

Co-President of Production, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Creative Executive, Kiska Higgs will oversee the project for Universal Pictures.

"2 Guns" is a pulp story about cops and thieves and the men that are something in between. In the graphic novel, Trench has targeted a local bank to rob, and asked Steadman in on the job. Trench figures it's a great way to score – considering it's a cover for mob money. They'll be thieves ripping off thieves. But what Steadman doesn't know is that Trench is a DEA agent. And what Trench doesn't know is that Steadman's got his own secret and isn't who he appears to be.

2 Guns Director Talks Story, Rating and Action

by SuperHeroHype

November 29, 2012

The BOOM! Studios comic book 2 Guns is getting the big screen treatment from Universal Pictures and director Baltasar Kormákur sat down with Collider to talk about the film in what is really his first interview about the project.

"It's based on a comic book," said the director. "I didn't know (that) when it was presented to me. It's kind of a pulpy thriller with a comic element to it. It doesn't take itself too seriously but it's not broad and stupid. It's probably closer to 48 Hours than Bad Boys. Denzel (Washington) plays a DEA undercover and Mark (Wahlberg) plays a Navy Seal undercover and they don't know, and they plan a bank robbery together."

The original comic book features quite a bit of violence and it doesn't seem like that's changed for the film, as Kormákur says the final film may be rated 'R'. "On my contract it says 'R'. I'll only do an 'R' if it makes the movie better. If it comes to a place where it doesn't really matter and you have to take out one F-word' or something, that's fine, it doesn't matter. But I'm not going to slice it down to make it soft."

2 Guns will be a little different from his previous film with Mark Wahlberg (Contraband) in terms of execution. "It relies less on action. I don't mind doing action but I'm more interested in character based work. There's some good action in it but it doesn't go to the extreme in the action. Hopefully there's more fun in the action and not necessarily big explosions."

Kormákur revealed that he's in the process of editing the Director's Cut now. "It's just about two hours right now. It came in at like two hours and twenty five minutes and just by trimming....it's probably like two hours and ten minutes right now."

With editing almost complete, the production is currently seeking out someone to score the film. "Clinton Shorter, maybe this is too early to reveal, but we're in negotiations with him. He did Contraband and he did District 9 as well."

Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Edward James Olmos and James Marsden star in the August 16, 2013 release.
