Michael Pena has signed to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in the political thriller "Shooter."
His many movie credits and lots of experience in performing various characters have given Michael Pena more than enough provisions to take "Shooter" as his next film project.
There in the political thriller, he will play opposite Mark Wahlberg who's been set to portray an ace marksman who is framed for a presidential assassination he was trying to prevent. He is forced to go on the run while trying to track down the real killer and find out who betrayed him. As of Pena, he will play the nemesis of Wahlberg's character.
In the meantime, Antoine Fuqua is directing the Paramount project from an adaptation of Stephen Hunter's 1993 novel "Point of Impact." Shooting on the movie is scheduled to begin June 19 in Vancouver.
