Okay, action fans, pay attention.
Director Peter Berg is reteaming with his Lone Survivor lead Mark Wahlberg in Mile 22, an action film set to co-star UFC champion Ronda Rousey and The Raid star Iko Uwais.
THR is reporting that Berg and Wahlberg, who are currently filming oil spill disaster pic Deepwater Horizon, are in talks with STX Entertainment to bring the action film to life.
Set in Indonesia, Mile 22 will tell of a CIA agent (Wahlberg) who’s on a mission to get an informant from the city to a getaway plane at an airport 22 miles away. Suffice it to say, the journey isn’t going to be easy; corrupt cops, criminal leaders, and armed locals are determined the agent and his informant won’t make that flight.
The screenplay comes from Graham Roland, who’s got a history of TV work with credits on Prison Break, Lost, Fringe, Almost Human and The Returned.
Berg and Wahlberg are attached to produce alongside Stephen Levinson (Lone Survivor, Entourage) and Roland is also on board to executive produce.
