The last news update for we had on the comic adaptation 2 GUNS was that the lovely Paula Patton would be joining Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington in the story of "a Navy SEAL and a DEA agent, respectively, who work together despite not knowing that the each is doing so undercover. When the duo steal millions from the CIA, they discover double-crossing associates who will do anything to retrieve the money."  It is also confirmed that Patton will play "a DEA agent who serves as Washington's possible love interest."

And now a new castmember has joined the pack, namely one Edward James Olmos.  You may have seen him on "Dexter" or "Battlestar Galactica," though I will forever be a fan simply because he worked on NAUSICAA OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND.  Olmos "is in talks to play Papi Greco, a dangerous Mexican druglord who runs up against the protags."

Baltasar Kormakur (CONTRABAND) is set to direct, and once the villain is fully locked down production should be able to start soon thereafter.

Extra Tidbit: Edward James Olmos was the only member of the original "Miami Vice" cast that was asked to reprise his role (Lt. Martin Castillo) for the 2006 movie. But he turned it down and the role went to frequent Michael Mann collaborator Barry Shabaka Henley.

Baltasar Kormakur is right up there with Olivier Megaton when it comes to the names of film directors who may or may not also be Bond villains.
