Fred Ward Joins The Cast Of 2 GUNS
The 30 Minutes Or Less actor has signed on for a role in Universal Pictures' adaptation of the Boom! Studios graphic novel 2 Guns. The action thriller will star Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington.
Variety reports that Fred Ward (recently seen in last year's comedy 30 Minutes Or Less) has been cast in Universal Pictures' action thriller 2 Guns, an adaptation of Boom! Studios graphic novel written by Steven Grant. All that is known about Ward's role in the movie, which stars Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington as a Navy SEAL and a DEA agent, is that he will play "a top-ranking U.S. Navy admiral." Paula Patton, James Marsden, Bill Paxton and Edward James Olmos make up the rest of the film's cast. Baltasar Kormakur (who previously directed Wahlberg in Contraband) will helm the adaptation, which was written by Blake Masters. The film is expected to hit theaters sometime next year.
Below is a plot summary of the 2 Guns graphic novel:
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!
