Andrew Cosby and Ross Richie will produce for BOOM! Studios. Unversal's Co-President of Production, Jeff Kirschenbaum and Creative Executive, Kiska Higgs will oversee the project.
Here is a description of the story:
"2 Guns" is a pulp story about cops and thieves and the men that are something in between. In the graphic novel, Trench has targeted a local bank to rob, and asked Steadman in on the job. Trench figures it's a great way to score – considering it's a cover for mob money. They'll be thieves ripping off thieves. But what Steadman doesn't know is that Trench is a DEA agent. And what Trench doesn't know is that Steadman's got his own secret and isn't who he appears to be."
I am not familar with this graphic novel, but it sounds cool. Wahlberg is great at playing this type of role. I prefer him in these types of films over comedies personally. What are your thoughts of this news?
