Bryan Singer eyes Prisoners

Bryan Singer interested in Mark Wahlberg’s Prisoners

Bryan Singer is reportedly interested in directing the much-sought-after thriller script “The Prisoners.

The film will star Mark Wahlberg as a Boston dad who takes the law into his own hands when his young daughter is kidnapped.

The screenplay, which has been compared to The Silence of the Lambs and Seven, has been buzzed about as a calling card for its unknown writer, Aaron Guzikowski, and as a rare project targeted at adult audiences but with real commercial potential.

When asked whether “The Prisoners” will be his next movie, Singer told reports: “I don’t know yet. But I’m definitely intrigued. It’s a great script. And I’d love to work with Mark.”
