Denzel Washington gets attached to two guns

2 min read


The upcoming film adaptation of the 2 Guns graphic novel has been slowly simmering on the backburner for a while now, and while it does have some star-power in the form of Mark “Why can’t I stop frowning” Wahlberg”, it’s been decidedly lacking when it comes to casting the other lead role.

Well that’s all changed, as Denzel Washington has entered talks to snatch the other leading role, in a film that gives the cops and robbers theme a twist.

Created by Steven Grant, 2 Guns tells the tale of an undercover naval intelligence officer and DEA agent who are investigating each other for stealing money from the mob, albeit without the other one knowing that they’re being shadowed and watched.

Gunplay, obviously, ensues at some point. While 2 Guns was originally going to be directed by David O Russell, a disagreement of creative differences with Wahlberg saw the departure of Russell from the project, with Wahlberg BFF and Contraband director Baltasar Kormákur taking over the film.

Universal Studios is producing, but understandably also looking for a partner to share the cost of those expensive two guns with.
