Mark Wahlberg is such an interesting person to watch on screen. It's no secret he's tough, but his soft voice throws you for a loop.
"Say hello to your mother for me."
I was watching The Happening the other day and couldn't get over how compassionate (and weak) this usually-tough guy can sound. Maybe he didn't like the impression he left with that one either, as he's returning to a more tough-guy thriller.
Mark Wahlberg for Reykjavic-Rotterdam Remake
Looking to Iceland, Working Title Films are working to remake Reykjavic-Rotterdam. Baltasar Kormakur, who starred in the film, and produced it and owned remake rights, will direct the remake off a script by Aaron Guzikowski.
If all goes to play, Wahlberg will play an ex-freight ship worker, fired for smuggling alcohol between Reykjavic and Rotterdam, who is struggling as a security guard. His best friend convinces him to sign on for one last crooked job. The worker doesn’t realize his friend has set him up and plans to make off with his family while he’s away at sea.
The original film did so well in Iceland that it is the country's foreign language submission for the upcoming Oscars.
