Kate Beckinsale to join Mark Wahlberg smuggling Contraband

09.17.2010

I have a hard time separating out Kate Beckinsale from her role in the "why is this a series?" series UNDERWORLD, and when I do, I remember that her big break was in PEARL HARBOR. And seeing those are her two most memorable roles, I would say she hasn't quite lived up to her potential yet, though as she's extremely hot, I'm rooting for her.

Latino Review reports that a new upcoming role for her (other than the long delayed UNDERWORLD 4) will be opposite Mark Wahlberg in CONTRABAND, a remake of an award-winning Icelandic movie called REYKJAVIK-ROTTERDAM which is getting an Americanized version because what, we're supposed to read subtitles? Please.

Here's the story:

The plot centers on a security guard and former alcohol smuggler on the Iceland-Netherlands route who is tempted back into illicit business by a dubious friend after encountering financial problems. The original, which Oskar Jonasson directed, was Iceland's submission for the 2009 foreign-language Oscar race and won five of that country's film awards. Aaron Guzikowski, the writer behind 2009 Blacklist spec "Prisoners," is penning the script.

So it's got solid source material but are Beckinsale and Wahlberg the two dramatic powerhouses to bring this to life? Not so sure about that, but I'll give it a chance.

Extra Tidbit: We need more female action stars, someone write a non-vampire themed adventure for Beckinsale to star in! Preferably where she fights Milla Jovovich.

Wahlberg is fine, but Beckinsale does very little for me at this point. She hasn't starred in a good movie in years (if ever).

Sounds like a good story and will have a good cast to boot.

And I imagine that all your friends call you a tool as well. Though technically, it should be "both", not "all"

Jealous much? Dont' take your aggression out on me just because your simple, pathetic life revolves around having your overweight ass sitting at home with your parents on a Friday night, whilst you jerk off to your ever-growing collection of porn and living in a country that has less people than the State of California. I'm sorry we can't all be pathetic, ugly losers like you.

hahaha nice vemom buddy! very threatening.
but you're wasting time, clearly there's another site where you can post an undoubtedly true and completely relevant comment about dating kate beckinsale's doppelganger; maybe you'll have better luck and ppl will actually believe you.
but if that doesnt work, feel free to take ANY story about a popular actress (scarlett, emma stone, really, really the choice is yours!) and try it out from the beginning.. I have faith that eventually, you'll get a

I have faith that eventually, you'll get a reply along the lines of "wow, you're a stud! can we hang out??". Simply because, as you have worked hard to demonstrate, the internet is filled with retarded people. Just hold out a while longer.. you'll meet your lobster! I believe in you!

Did You Know...

It's always important for any self-respecting photographer to ice down his/her subject's nipples before beginning the shoot.

Premise sounds cool and I'm a fan of both Wahlberg and Beckinsale. Especially in photos like that one.

A good Kate Beckinsale movie is Snow Angels. Great, twisted movie with a brilliant Sam Rockwell.
