2 Guns Director: Baltasar KormÃ¡kur
Screenwriter: Blake Masters
Cast: Denzel Washington, Mark Wahlberg, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, Edward James Olmos, Fred Ward Universal Pictures
Rated R | 109 Minutes
Release Date: August 2, 2013
Had 2 Guns been released in 1997, it would have been directed by Renny Harlin or Sheldon Lettich with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dennis Rodman Wesley Snipes as counter-terrorist operatives framed for a crime they didn’t commit.
The film’s tag line would be something like “They don’t play by the rules,” and the trailer would highlight the unlikely duo as a highly effective tag-team of street smarts and technical precision, dealing out one-liners and helicopter spin-kicks amidst explosions and shoot-outs.
Luckily, it isn’t 1997 – because I would be in middle school – and 2 Guns is an entirely solid, straightforward “Movie for Guys Who Like Movies” directed by Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar KormÃ¡kur (101 ReykjavÃk, Contraband). Based on a comic book series of the same name published by BOOM! Studios, 2 Guns stars Denzel Washington as DEA Agent Bobby Trench and Mark Wahlberg as NCIS Agent Marcus Stigman, two undercover operatives who are unknowingly investigating each other.
The trailer for 2 Guns has popped up on the internet and I have it in my sights. The film is directed by Icelander Baltasar KormÃ¡kur with a screenplay by Blake Masters. The movie 2 Guns is based off the BOOM! Studios graphic novel of the same name.
Drop below the jump to find out what I thought of Academy Award winner Denzel Washington(Man on Fire, Training Day) and Mark Wahlberg(The Departed, Three Kings) teaming up to be the latest buddy cop movie on the block.
With Safe House set to bow this weekend, star Denzel Washington is already looking towards his next projects.
Deadline reports that he’s in talks to join Universal’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 he’ll take on this film penned by Blake Masters, which follows “a DEA agent and an undercover naval intelligence officer unwittingly investigate each other as each steals mob money.” The picture is based off of a Boom Studios graphic novel.
