Lone Survivor

Story by Jack Foley

MARK Wahlberg is to reunite with Lone Survivor director Peter Berg for action movie Mile 22.

The film co-stars UFC fighter turned actress Ronda Rousey and Iko Uwais, who headlined the acclaimed martial-arts movies The Raid and The Raid 2.

The story will follow a CIA agent (Wahlberg) stationed in Indonesia who must transport a compromised informant from the centre of the city to an awaiting getaway plane at an airport 22 miles away.

En route, they must outwit corrupt police, criminals and heavily armed locals who are hell-bent on taking them out.

Berg will direct from a script by Graham Roland.

The director said in a statement: “Mark Wahlberg and I are thrilled to have this project with Adam and the team at STX, and we are excited to be working with Iko Uwais and Ronda Rousey to create a fresh and daring new take on the action genre.”
