Paula Patton Adds Some Heat To 2 Guns

Paula Patton, fresh off a star making turn in “Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol”, is in talks to star with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in an adaption of the graphic novel “2 Guns”.

Here’s what Amazon says about “2 Guns”:

A pulp story about cops and thieves and the men that are something in between. Trench has targeted a local bank to rob, and asked Steadman in on the job. Trench figures it’s a great way to score — considering it’s a cover for mob money. They’ll be thieves ripping off thieves. But what Steadman doesn’t know is that Trench is a DEA agent. And what Trench doesn’t know is that Steadman’s a Naval Intelligence officer. They’re both cops! And neither one knows that they’re not robbing the mob, they’ve been set up to steal $50 million from the CIA! A light-hearted crime romp in the vein of Ocean’s Thirteen and The Italian Job from comics legend, Steven Grant!

That’s a promising set up: a crime caper with mistaken identities and comedic and action leanings. I’m curious to see if they’ll play the story like that, or if they’ll take a more serious tone. Either way, “2 Guns” has a lot of potential. Patton will be Denzel’s love interest. Baltasar Kormakur, who recently directed Wahlberg in “Contraband”, will helm the whole shooting match.
