Russell Crowe to play the mayor in Broken City alongside Mark Wahlberg
Soon to be Superman's dad, Russell Crowe has just lined up another project co-starring with Mark Wahlberg titled, BROKEN CITY.
The film is from being helmed by Allen Hughes, who is taking some time away from his brother to do this one solo. Deadline had the full plot: "Wahlberg plays an ex-cop-turned-private detective who is hired by the mayor (the role Crowe will play) to see if his wife is cheating on him. The private eye confirms those suspicions, and when the mayor's wife's cheating partner ends up dead, the private eye immerses himself in the mayor's business and uncovers a real estate scandal that involves the pol dealing himself choice city-owned properties."
Brian Tucker wrote the script which was on the Black List in 2008. Wahlberg will produce through his company, Closest to the Hole.
This sounds awesome. Simply because of the Wahlberg/Crowe casting. Maybe Wahlberg will guest on Fightin' Around the World.
