Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are set to star in the upcoming action flick 2 Guns. An adaptation of Steven Grant’s comic book. In addition to the superstar leading men, 2 Guns also boasts a pretty impressive supporting cast including Paula Patton, Edward James Olmos, Bill Paxton and, now, according to Variety, James Marsden. Marsden, who is best known for his role as Scott ‘Cyclops’ Summers in the X-Men series, will be playing the role of a naval commander.
2 Guns is about a pair of undercover investigators, Wahlberg a Navy SEAL and Washington’s DEA agent, who find themselves working on the same heist while completely unaware of the other’s operation. They think they are stealing $50 million dollars from the mob but, after some predictable backstabbing, it turns out the money actually belongs to the CIA. Production on the film has already begun down in New Orleans and while no release date has been announced yet, it’s expected that the film will drop sometime in 2013.
