Mark Wahlberg has become attached to star in the Evan Turner-scripted action comedy “Partners” at New Line Cinema.
The buddy cop film has Wahlberg as an LAPD detective who falls for a beautiful woman after a one-night stand. Then he learns she is an FBI agent and his new boss on a high profile case.
The tone is said to be akin to “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” and the film will boast big action set pieces. Stephen Levinson will produce the film which is currently seeking both a leading actress and director.
