With Safe House set to bow this weekend, star Denzel Washington is already looking towards his next projects.
Deadline reports that heâ€™s in talks to join Universalâ€™s 2 Guns, alongside Mark Wahlberg and director Baltasar Kormakur.
Kormakur is probably best known for the odd little thriller Contraband, which hit earlier this year, and heâ€™ll take on this film penned by Blake Masters, which follows â€œa DEA agent and an undercover naval intelligence officer unwittingly investigate each other as each steals mob money.â€ The picture is based off of a Boom Studios graphic novel.
Personally, I think this could be quite a little thriller. I had my issues with Kormakurâ€™s last film, but there is a bit of charm within that faux-gritty little film, and this could be a great chance for Washington to again chew up some scenery. I mean, Iâ€™d sure love him to re-team with someone like Spike Lee for another drama, but there arenâ€™t many actors more fun to watch when they camp it up a bit than Denzel.
What do you think?
