Enchanted and Hop star James Marsden is going a little darker, as Variety reports that he’s signed on to join Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington in Baltasar Kormakur’s upcoming thriller, 2 Guns.
Based on the comics by Steven Grant, 2 Guns follows a DEA agent and a Naval Intelligence officer (Wahlberg and Washington) who unknowingly go undercover to investigate each other. The pair find themselves involved with a heist and are told they are stealing from the mob, but the truth is that they have actually stolen from the CIA. Paula Patton will play the project’s female lead, while Bill Paxton is a high ranking CIA operative.
Marsden has signed up to be a naval commander, although there’s no news on exactly how he will fit into the plot.
