Wahlberg goes with Crowe, not Crow

Wahlberg goes with Crowe, not Crow

Russell Crowe (”Gladiator”, ”A Beautiful Mind”, ”Robin Hood”) is set to start alongside Mark Wahlberg (”The Lovely Bones”, ”Contraband”, ”The Fighter”) in “Broken City”, an independently-financed noir drama to be directed by Allen Hughes.

Wahlberg stars as the ex-cop-cum-private-investigator hired by the city’s mayor (to be played by Crowe) to discover whether his wife is cheating on him; not only does the private eye confirm those suspicions, but upon immersing himself in the mayor’s business uncovers a real estate scandal that has the politician dealing himself luxury city-owned properties.

The film’s script by Brian Tucker made the 2008 Black List and the $60 million budget will be financed by Emmett/Furla Films. Wahlberg will produce under his Closest to the Hole banner alongside Hughes, George Furla, Randall Emmett and Stephen Levinson.
