Edward James Olmos vs. Wahlberg and Washington in 2 Guns

Edward James Olmos vs. Wahlberg and Washington in 2 Guns

“Battlestar Galactica” favourite Edward James Olmos is set to play the villain in the new Mark Wahlberg/Denzel Washington actioner “2 Guns”.

Variety says of the pic :

Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington star as a Navy SEAL and a DEA agent, respectively, who work together despite not knowing that the each is doing so undercover. When the duo steal millions from the CIA, they discover double-crossing associates who will do anything to retrieve the money. Pic co-stars Bill Paxton as a high-ranking CIA operative and Paula Patton as a DEA agent who serves as Washington’s possible love interest.

Olmos is in talks to play Papi Greco, a dangerous Mexican druglord who runs up against the protags.

Wahlberg’s “Contraband” helmer Baltasar Kormakur is directing from Blake Masters’ script, which is based on the graphic novel from Boom! Studios.

I don’t believe it’s been widely reported – or maybe I simply haven’t been reading enough of the trades this week – but Olmos also has a role in Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete Kills”.
