The pair are reportedly to play two incompetent mercenaries who are sent on a serious case involving terrorism and along the way discover that one of them is related to the target. Empire say the film is being pitched as a Lethal Weapon type film that focuses more on the action than the laughs. The script will come from Max Landis.
The pair have already been busy stepping out of their comfort zones, with Jonah Hill appearing in 21 Jump Street and Moneyball alongside Brad Pitt. At the same time Wahlberg has found his way into
comedy through films such as The Other Guys and Date Night and has also been involved with Seth McFarlane's film Ted.
With an unproved partnership on show in this one it will be interesting to see how the pair work together and how they will both cope stepping out of their comfort zones.
Does the pairing interest you? Looking forward to this one?
