Donnie Kills again
Reformed former boy-bander and SAW franchise man-candy Donnie Wahlberg is taking a more aggressive step towards capturing the international stardom that has thus far been hogged by brother Mark by landing a coveted role in the upcoming re-teaming of legendary cinematic screamers Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino in the thriller RIGHTEOUS KILL. Wahlberg revealed the news at the recent TCA press tour promoting his TV series "The Kill Point", mentioning "That's going to be a real challenge. I get to work with two of the greatest actors and drive to Boston every night. We start shooting in September, so it will be like going to school for me with two fantastic teachers." In the film, Pacino and DeNiro star as brooding, vociferously furious cops who are on the trail of a serial killer. Wahlberg plays the young rookie in awe of their impossibly powerful vocal cords.
