Marky & the Brothers

10.13.2004

Paramount, already in the Marky Mark business with the upcoming sequel to THE ITALIAN JOB, is looking to further their relationship with the former Funky Bunch leader. Mark Wahlberg is currently in negotiations to star in the revenge movie FOUR BROTHERS. John Singleton (BOYZ N THE HOOD) will direct the story of four adopted brothers who find out their mother was murdered and set out to chew bubblegum and kick some ass. The film takes a radical turn when the boys abruptly run out of bubblegum. Paramount is also in talks with Ice Cube to co-star as one of the brothers. Now if you told me in 1992 that the brother of a New Kid on the Block and white rapper behind "Good Vibrations" would be starring in a seriouis movie with the gangsta rapper behind such lyrics as "Cuz you can't be the Nigga 4 Life crew/with a white Jew tellin' you what to do," well I think my head would have popped clean off my neck. Then again if you told me Ice Cube would be starring in a movie like ARE WE THERE YET? (basically a rehash of the Ed O'Neill classic DUTCH), I would've told you were hitting the crack pipe a little too hard. P'mount is looking to put FOUR BROTHERS on the fasttrack and even possibly release it next summer. Wahlberg is currently getting raves for his performance in I ¢¾ HUCKABEES where he really stretches himself for the first time since BOOGIE NIGHTS. Singleton is also attached to direct the videogame adaptation of FEAR AND RESPECT but that would follow this film.
