Mark Wahlberg Cast As Jon Roberts In Untitled Drug Smuggling Film
— Posted by Rodney
Mark Wahlberg is going to dance with the white lady anew in an upcoming film based on the life and times of Peter Berg. We get the scoop today from the professionals at Variety:
I can appreciate a good drug-lord film every now and again. I like to see people working hard, providing party people with the accessories that they need to” get down” and live like Keith Richards. Then the bad men come and ruin everyones fun, they are called police, and they can certainly be a buzz kill.
The life of the drug lord is high octane, when you can be thrown in the slammer at any moment – you milk every ounce of life out of the time that you have. This makes for great movie scenes with outlandish parties of extreme decadence. Sluts are wrestling giraffes, a pony is wearing a zorro outfit and a bearded elderly man is peeing on a potted jade plant.
I have yet to see the doc Cocaine Cowboys but may try to hunt it down before this film is released. This project will begin with the end of the writer’s strike; so no word on when we can expect it to be released, but we will be sure to keep you posted.
