LOS ANGELES: Actors Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg are in negotiations with STX Entertainment, the newly launched film and TV studio, to team up for action movie “Mile 22″.
UFC champion-turned-actress Ronda Rousey and Iko Uwais, will also star in the movie.
Berg will produce the film, as will Wahlberg and Stephen Levinson. Roland will act as an executive producer.
“Mark Wahlberg and I are thrilled to have this project with Adam and the team at STX, and we are excited to be working with Iko Uwais and Ronda Rousey to create a fresh and daring new take on the action genre,” Berg said.
Graham Roland-written script is about a CIA agent (Wahlberg) stationed in Indonesia who is tasked with transporting a compromised informant from the center of the city to an awaiting getaway plane at an airport 22 miles away.
Wahlberg, 44, and Berg are currently shooting “Deepwater Horizon”, Lionsgate’s disaster drama based on the April 2010 oil-rig explosion.
The two also worked together as star and director, respectively, on 2013’s action drama “Lone Survivor”.
