Universal Pictures has won a bidding war for Tyler Marceca's spec script "The Disciple Program" at Leverage Entertainment reports Variety.

Mark Walhberg is attached to star and produce the story of a man investigating his wife's mysterious death only to find out it goes much deeper than he imagined.

Morten Tyldum ("Headhunters") is set to direct while Wahlberg and Steve Levinson will produce.

The project was previously set up with producer Joel Silver and actor Bradley Cooper but the project was changed with Wahlberg and Tyldum coming onboard and some re-writes ensued.
