Denzel Washington to Run Guns With Mark Wahlberg

Before his next movie Safe House comes out this weekend, Denzel Washington has already lined up another action movie that would pair him with a younger star. Deadline reports that Washington is in talks to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in 2 Guns, which will be helmed by Wahlberg's Contraband director Baltasar Kormakur; in it, Washington and Wahlberg would play a fed and a naval officer who each plan to rip off the mob. If that seems like too much of the same thing you've been getting from Washington as of late, never fear: He's got Robert Zemeckis's $32 million drama Flight coming in between, where he plays a hero pilot with a dark secret.
