Is it me, or are Mark Wahlberg movies all starting to look the same? In my defense, the 46-year-old actor’s latest project finds himself teaming up with director Peter Berg again. They previously worked together on Lone Survivor (2013) and Patriots Day (2016).
In a visceral modern thriller, 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.
Reportedly, there’s already a sequel in development with a possibility of a scripted TV series. Guess STX Entertainment is feeling quite bullish on the film’s prospects.
Joining Wahlberg in the action film are Lauren Cohan, Ronda Rousey, John Malkovich and Indonesian martial artist Iko Uwais. Mile 22 arrives August 3. Check out the red band trailer below.
