Denzel Washington Eyes 2 Guns

Denzel Washington is in talks to join the cast of Universal Pictures’ 2 Guns, Deadline reports. Mark Wahlberg is already attached to star as well.

Based on the graphic novel by Steven Grant and published by BOOM! Studios, 2 Guns features a script by Blake Masters and will be directed by Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband).

“2 Guns” is a pulp story about cops and thieves and the men that are something in between. In the graphic novel, Trench has targeted a local bank to rob, and asked Steadman in on the job. Trench figures it’s a great way to score – considering it’s a cover for mob money. They’ll be thieves ripping off thieves. But what Steadman doesn’t know is that Trench is a DEA agent. And what Trench doesn’t know is that Steadman’s got his own secret and isn’t who he appears to be.

Washington can next be seen in the Universal project, Safe House, opening this Friday.
