So, I’m sure you all know that Mark Wahlberg is already set to star in the upcoming Allen Hughes’ project titled Broken City.
And it sounds pretty cool actually, because our little Marky Mark will play an ex-cop turned private detective, and not some tough guy.
Because I just can’t stand that, ok? That’s why I wish to thank God for the latest casting news that comes from Hollywood, and it goes like this – Russell Crowe has joined Broken City as well!
Ok, now we’re talking about something that makes sense!
Here’s the thing. Crowe comes on board to play mayor, who’s wife is apparently cheating on him (how dares she!?) so that’s when Wahlberg comes in, to solve the whole thing, I guess.
But let’s stop rumors, and reveal that the private detective will confirm the suspicions, and when the mayor’s wife’s cheating partner ends up dead, the private eye immerses himself in the mayor’s business and uncovers a real estate scandal that involves the pol dealing himself choice city-owned properties.
Let me just add that now I’m very interested to hear who will play Crowe’s wife, because I want to find that bitch too!
I should also add that the script comes from Brian Tucker, and it made the 2008 Black List script.
So, I guess that with the $60 million film and this interesting cast we have at least one good reason to keep an eye on this project. And that reason is Russell Crowe.
