Actor Bill Paxton is wrapping up negotiations to star alongside Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington in the cast of “2 Guns,” a movie about a DEA agent and undercover naval officer who unwittingly investigate each other when both steal mob money, Variety reports.

Paxton’s role would be playing a high-ranking CIA operative who is pulled into the mess.

Paula Patton plays Washington’s lover.

The film is being directed by Baltasar Kormákur, who headed up the film, “Contraband.”

Filming began this week and is expected to be in cinemas next year.

Wahlberg: “Whitey” Bulger Wants to Meet With Me

Whitey Bulger/fbi

The imprisoned  Boston gangster James “Whitey” Bulger is trying to get hold of Mark Wahlberg, the actor says.

The meeting is only speculation at this point, reports The Inquisitr, but it seems plausible Bulger wants Wahlberg to portray his likeness in a possible biopic on the criminal.

“I actually got a call about coming to see Whitey, he wants me to come down and visit him,” Wahlberg has previously said to Reuters. “Maybe he’ll give me the exclusive rights to tell his story, because he knows we can do it better than anybody else.”

Bulger was a long-time informant for the FBI at the same time he ran a vast criminal enterprise in Boston, which later caused much embarrassment to the bureau. When the FBI decided to indict Bulger on murder charges he took off as and lived for 16 years as a fugitive, making the FBI’s Top Ten most wanted list before being arrested last year.
