Paula Patton Up for 2 Guns

2 Guns looks to have found its female lead. Deadline reports that Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol star Paula Patton is in negotiations to appear in the BOOM! Studios comic book adaptation.

Already set to star Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington, 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.

The original comic book was written by Steven Grant and illustrated by Mat Santolouco. The film version features a script by Blake Masters and will be directed by Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband).
