Wahlberg is hired by Crowe to investigate the man who slept with Catherine Zeta-Jones only to find that Crowe has his own evil plan.
Mark Wahlberg lets out his inner badass in a trailer for "Broken City". Making its way out via MTV News, the action-heavy video is studded with scenes of the "Ted" actor wielding his guns, taking down bad guys and doing other brutal scenes after getting hired by Russell Crowe.
It begins when Crowe's Nicholas Hostetler, a popular New York mayor, taps Wahlberg's Billy Taggart to find the man who slept with the mayor's wife played by Catherine Zeta-Jones. As he goes into his mission, Taggart discovers that the problem is not as simple as just a love affair. Trapped in Hostetler's game, Taggart tries to seek revenge by asking the help from the mayor's wife.
"Broken City" is directed by Allen Hughes with Brian Tucker penning the script. Scheduled for a January 18, 2013 release Stateside, the action thriller is also supported by Kyle Chandler, Alona Tal, Natalie Martinez, Barry Pepper and Jeffrey Wright.
Aside from this movie, Wahlberg is gearing up to return to the "Ted" sequel and headline the much-awaited "Transformers 4". Dishing on his future projects, Wahlberg tells Collider, "We're shooting Transformers in May, and then I believe we're gonna do Ted 2 right after."
"They're working on it now and we've kind of gone through the negotiation process. The great thing about it is Seth [MacFarlane]'s ideas for the second one are sick. He comes from the world of episodic television so he knows how to tell the stories, man, in a way that most people don't, like for instance The Italian Job we've been trying to do the sequel for 10 years. He's a different kind of guy."
