Just a little update! We finally have a release date for Baltasar Kormakur‘s action thriller 2 Guns! You know, the movie that stars Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in the leading roles? That one is now set to open on August 16th, so make sure you bookmark the date somewhere! In case you’re not so familiar with this title, make sure you check out the rest of this report for the official synopsis and the rest of the cast!
So, as we previously reported, Kormakur will direct the movie from a script written by Blake Masters and David O. Russell, and the whole thing is actually based on the Boom! Studios Graphic Novels by Steven Grant.
The movie will center on two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unique alliance: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent. The rest of the story goes like this:
For the past 12 months, DEA agent Bobby Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Marcus Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down.When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Trench and Stigman are suddenly disavowed by their superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.
Beside Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, 2 Guns also stars Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, James Marsden, Fred Ward and Edward James Olmos, and Universal will release the movie on August 16th, 2013!
