Mark Wahlberg is revisiting his "Boogie Nights" years - he is planning to shoot another movie about the porn industry. The actor played a male prostitute in the 1997 film about the "golden era" of adult movies in the 1970s and 1980s.

Now he wants to bring the story up to date by shooting a TV drama about a porn company struggling to compete with adult websites, and a girl who travels to Los Angeles hoping to make it in the sex industry.

New York Post gossip column Page Six reports Wahlberg has teamed up with his fellow "Entourage" executive producer Steve Levinson and writer James Frey to work on a script for U.S. network HBO. Frey tells the publication, "We're going to make a sprawling epic about the porn business in L.A. We're going to tell the type of stories no one else has told before, and go places no one has gone before."
