The picture reunites Wahlberg with Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon and Patriots Day director Peter Berg and follows a CIA operative as he and a tactical command team attempt to get an important informant across town. Baddies aren’t going to make that easy.
It looks like a pretty tough action film, with headshots, stabbings and broken bones, and just in the trailer below. It’s great to see The Raid star Iko Uwais get a chance to show off his skills in a big Hollywood film, and it’s nice to see Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan getting another big-screen role, too. Fingers crossed we’re in for an intense fun ride here, and that STXfilms is on the right track by already greenlighting a sequel..
Mile 22, also starring John Malkovich and Ronda Rousey, will open in the US on August 3 and arrives in Australia on August 23.
Official synopsis for Mile 22:
In a visceral modern thriller from the director of Lone Survivor, Mark Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA’s most highly-prized and least understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in.
