Story by Jack Foley

DENZEL Washington is to star alongside Mark Wahlberg in the action comedy 2 Guns.

The film reunites Wahlberg with Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur following their work together on his US debut Contraband.

The plot follows a DEA agent (Washington) and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer (Wahlberg) as they investigate one another but find out they have both been set up by the mob – the very organisation the two men thought they had been stealing money from.

The film is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Steven Grant.

Principle photography is due to begin in June on location in New Mexico and Louisiana.

Wahlberg’s Contraband opens in UK cinemas in March, while Washington can shortly be seen in Safe House alongside Ryan Reynolds, which is due to open in UK cinemas on February 24.
