Universal Studios is taking Steven Grant‘s graphic novel, 2 Guns, onto the big screen. Playing a CIA operative, Bill Paxton will be co-starring with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg.
I haven’t seen Paxton in anything that he’s done, but I hear that he did a really good job in the Hatfields and McCoys miniseries on the History Channel.
The film will be directed by Baltasar Kormakur (known for Contraband) and the screenplay was written by Blake Masters.
From Coming Soon:
“2 Guns” is a pulp story about cops and thieves and the men that are something in between. In the graphic novel, 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 got his own secret and isn’t who he appears to be.
