Netflix’s feature-length take on the classic Robert Urich-starrer “Spenser” has been set for a release.
Before the big bow, here’s a trailer that sets the tone of the action-comedy – a two-hander starring Mark Wahlberg and “Black Panther” alum Winston Duke.
Wahlberg’s go-to guy, Peter Berg (“Deepwater Horizon”, “Patriot’s Day”) directed the film.
Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) — an ex-cop better known for making trouble than solving it — just got out of prison and is leaving Boston for good. But first he gets roped into helping his old boxing coach and mentor, Henry (Alan Arkin), with a promising amateur. That’s Hawk (Winston Duke), a brash, no-nonsense MMA fighter convinced he’ll be a tougher opponent than Spenser ever was. When two of Spenser’s former colleagues turn up murdered, he recruits Hawk and his foul-mouthed ex-girlfriend, Cissy (Iliza Shlesinger), to help him investigate and bring the culprits to justice. From director Peter Berg, SPENSER CONFIDENTIAL is an action-comedy co-starring Bokeem Woodbine, Marc Maron, and Post Malone. Inspired by Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins.
“Spenser Confidential” will be available March 6 on Netflix.
