Russell Crowe Rules ‘Broken City’ With An Iron Fist

Monday, August 8 by

Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe are squaring off. Crowe has just signed on for the Allen Hughes-directed noir thriller Broken City. In the film, He’ll play a mayor who suspects that his wife is cheating. In turn, he hires Mark Wahlberg’s detective character to investigate. When the wife’s lover is found dead with a phone shoved up his butt, Wahlberg looks into the Mayor and discovers he’s profiting from a real estate scandal.

Seems like pretty solid casting. I can easily buy Crowe as a corrupt mayor who punches his problems away. I bet that he’s nothing short of hilarious during city debates. (Deadline)
