Bill Paxton has been cast in the upcoming comic book adaptation of 2 Guns. Paxton will join Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, and Paula Patton in the film, and he'll play a CIA operative.
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.
The original comic was written by Steven Grant and illustrated by Mat Santolouco. The script for the film was written by Blake Masters and is being directed by Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband).
Paxton will make a great addition to the cast, he's good in everything he's done. I don't know if you saw his Hatfields and McCoys miniseries on the History Channel, but he was awesome in it.
