Wahlberg's a Prisoner

Mar. 6, 2009by: Daniel Barna

Mark Wahlberg has starred in a caper flick, he's done the whole sci-fi thing, and he's flexed his abs while wearing a pair of sexy panties for Calvin Klein. But Marky Mark seems most comfortable playing the vigilante, the guy who's been so wronged that he's gotta bust some fat skulls in order to do right. After proving his penchant for revenge in films like SHOOTER and MAX PAYNE, Wahlberg plans on taking it to the next level with PRISONERS, which will see the ab-tastic actor portray a Boston man who turns vigilante after his daughter and her best friend are kidnapped.

The film, which was penned by Aaron Guzikowski, won't feature Wahlberg talking to goats and asking randoms to say hi to their mothers for him, but next to Daniel Craig there's no one I'd rather see get revenge on some baddies than Mark Wahlberg. Count me in.
Extra Tidbit: The film is still seeking a director. Who do you suggest?

Antoine Fuquanidiot

Antoine Fuqua? You serious dude? That guy is a total hack...name one movie he's made that's half decent.

The plot sounds boring. Been done. I like your new title filmaddict.

New Title

My suggested title for this film:

"TAKEN BY A MAN ON FIRE: MAX PAIN - DEATH SENTENCE"

Seriously, hasn't the whole revenge-thriller thing been done to death recently?

He needs to do another "Four Brothers" type of rule. I've always been a fan of his movies, but lately (specially with Max Payne) he seems to be playing dull parts. "Four Brothers" style is definitely where its at for him.

*standing ovation*

I'm all for it. Mark Wahlberg makes any movie better just by being in it - and if the movie is already really good, he makes it terrific.

Tony Scott. His work on Man on Fire was awesome (except for that heavily-editing style that gave me an eye strain). Or Ridley Scott; still like his style on Black Rain several years ago.
