“Mile 22” Is Already Getting A Sequel

Despite the film not opening until August, plans are already in place for a sequel to the Mark Wahlberg-led and Peter Berg-directed action-thriller “Mile 22” at STXfilms.

Black List writer Umair Aleem will pen the story for the follow-up to the first film which follows an elite American intelligence officer who, aided by a top-secret tactical command unit, tries to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country.

Ronda Rousey, John Malkovich and Lauren Cohan co-star in that film which opens in cinemas on August 17th. Plot specifics and casting on the sequel remains under-wraps, but STX has reportedly always planned “Mile 22” to be a cross-platform franchise with a potential sequel, TV spin-off and gaming tie-ins.
