Giovanni Ribisi and Ben Foster may team with Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale for Contraband
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Ben Foster and Giovanni Ribisi are in negotiations to join Mark Wahlberg and Kate Beckinsale for the thriller CONTRABAND. The film follows a broke security guard (Wahlberg) who decides to do one more smuggle run to make a little extra cash. Ben Foster would play Wahlberg’s brother-in-law but we don’t know what Giovanni Ribisi would play. CONTRABAND will be directed by Baltasar Kormakur and will begin shooting sometime in January with a release date in the spring of 2012.
I’ve been a longtime fan of Mark Wahlberg’s and even though this looks like another one of his “tough-guy” movies I think it sounds pretty good. I’m so glad he’s starting to do films that everyone thinks is awesome instead of just me, it makes it a whole lot easier when I have to defend his bad decisions like MAX PAYNE. Look for his upcoming film THE FIGHTER which hits theaters this month.
