Mark Wahlberg talks Broken City Mark Wahlberg is eying crime drama Broken City with Book Of Eli co-director Allen Hughes. The story centres on a private detective who gets drawn into New York City’s corrupt mayoral race. Speaking to MTV about the project, Wahlberg – who will play lead character Billy Taggart – called it an “amazing piece of material”. “Broken City I want to do at the end of next year with Allen Hughes directing,” he said. “[It’s] on the Black List. It’s one of the best unproduced screenplays – an amazing piece of material that should attract amazing talent.” The actor was recently confirmed for the movie based on video game Uncharted.
