You can add Bill Paxton, coming off the runaway success of the History Channel’s mini-series “Hatfields and McCoys” to the cast of Universal’s “2 Guns”, their adaptation of the comic book of the same name. Paxton will play a “high ranking CIA operative”. And if I’ve learned anything in all my years of watching movies, it’s that “high ranking CIA operatives” are almost always kind of douches.
“2 Guns” is set to star Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg as “a DEA agent and an undercover naval intelligence officer who unwittingly investigate each other as each steals mob money.” Hey, if you have to absolutely steal someone’s money, it mind as well be the mob’s, right? I mean, it’s not as if they came to it legally or anything.
Paula Patton was also recently added to the cast. My guess is she’ll play the really hot woman.
Baltasar Kormakur, who directed Wahlberg on “Contraband”, will make “2 Guns” his Hollywood follow-up.
