Catherine Zeta-Jones moves into “Broken City” with Wahlberg, Crowe

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Catherine Zeta-Jones has worked off and on since 2007’s “No Reservations” opposite Aaron Eckhart, content to stay busy off screen with husband Michael Douglas and their family.

But the Oscar winner appears ready to get back in the game, so to speak. She’ll appear in Adam Shankman’s musical adaptation of “Rock of Ages” alongside Tom Cruise next year. And she’s signing on for a Mark Wahlberg thriller that shoots soon.

Zeta-Jones would play the wife of New York’s mayor (Russell Crowe) in “Broken City,” a drama being shot by Allen Hughes, EW.com confirms.

As the plot advances, the mayor hires a private detective (Wahlberg) to investigate suspicions that his wife is cheating on him. Needless to say, the investigation unearths a web of corruption that threatens to bring every major player down.

Hughes moved to “Broken City” when his “Akira” remake stalled. This “Briken City” cast is tantalizing. I’ll be interested to see how dark Hughes goes with the material, because I think all three actors are willing to get down in the mud for the benefit of a powerful story.
