Denzel Washington joins Mark Wahlberg for “2 Guns”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Denzel Washington — like his contemporary, Liam Neeson — is continuing to flex his muscle in action films that tap into his ice-cold intensity. “Safe House” co-stars Ryan Reynolds and casts Washington as a CIA traitor seeking security from our government when his enemies get too close. The film opens Friday.

But once “Safe House” opens, Washington isn’t prepared to hang up his guns. Literally. THR announced that the Oscar winner is set to join Marj Wahlberg in the action-comedy “2 Guns,” for director Baltasar Kormakur (“Contraband,” also with Wahlberg).

The film’s rights is being pre-sold in Berlin. The plot, based on a graphic novel, follows a DEA agent (Washington) and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer (Wahlberg) who, according to the trade, “are tasked with investigating one another but find out they have both been set up by the mob – the very organization the two men thought they had been stealing money from.”

Buddy-cop comedies always are welcome in my books. Can Washington and Wahlberg become the next Riggs and Murtaugh? The next Tango and Cash?! We can only hope.

In the meantime, Wahlberg next can be seen Seth MacFarlane’s comedy “Ted,” and in “Broken City” early next year.
