Actress circles graphic novel adaptation.
‘Mission: Impossible–Ghost Protocol’ actress Paula Patton has entered talks to join Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in the Baltasar Kormakur-directed ‘2 Guns,’ reports Deadline.
Based on Steven Grant’s Boom! Studios graphic novel of the same name, the screenplay was penned by Blake Masters (‘Rubicon,’ ‘Brotherhood’). The synopsis for the Grant’s book:
“A pulp story about cops and thieves and the men that are something in between. Trench has targeted a local bank to rob, and asked Steadman in on the job. Trench figures it’s a great way to score — considering it’s a cover for mob money. They’ll be thieves ripping off thieves. But what Steadman doesn’t know is that Trench is a DEA agent. And what Trench doesn’t know is that Steadman’s a Naval Intelligence officer. They’re both cops! And neither one knows that they’re not robbing the mob, they’ve been set up to steal $50 million from the CIA!”
Patton previously starred opposite Washington in Tony Scott’s 2006 action thriller ‘Déjà vu.’
