Denzel Washington is in talks to join another action thriller called 2 Guns, in which he would star along side Mark Wahlberg. Washington must love doing these kinds of films. His next film, Safe House with Ryan Reynolds, comes out next week.
2 Guns is an adaptation of the Boom! Studios graphic novel by Steven Grant. The script was written by Blake Masters, and Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband) is attached to direct. This is one of those films perfect for Washington and Wahlberg. They both seem to enjoy making the same kind of film over and over again. That doesn't mean the movie won't be entertaining! Or does it?
I've never read the comic, but here's 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.
Washington just finished shooting Robert Zemekis' new live-action film Flight, where he plays "a pilot with a sobriety problem who pulls off a Sully-like landing of a commercial airliner and saves the passengers, only to see his dark secret surface."
What do you think about Washington possibly joining the movie?
