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)

Though that itself sounds like the name of a video game. New drinking game idea: Mark Wahlberg Film or Video Game.

Allen Hughes is attached to direct from the script by Brian Tucker. It’s a hot property in Hollywood after having landed on the black list. If he can work it into his schedule, Wahlberg will play Taggert — a former cop who is disgraced after shooting a teenager. He’s then hired by the mayor of New York to keep tabs on his cheating wife. Why hire Wahlberg’s character for that? Is she cheating with teens? (MTV)
