Deja Vu

Paula Patton is "in talks" to join Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in 2 Guns - a film adaptation of Steven Grant's graphic novel published by Boom! Studios.

Baltasar Kormakur (who directed Wahlberg in Contraband) will helm the project which centers on a DEA agent and an undercover naval intelligence officer who "unwittingly investigate each other as each steals mob money."

I smell elements of The Departed (said in my best Boston accent).

I know, I know... this does sound awfully familiar you say; The older black Denzel being paired with the younger white male co-star, and as in Safe House, Wahlberg's character (like Ryan Reynolds') will have a fuller life, with a romance and family, and Denzel will have to be content with being the film's resident loner badass who teaches the young stud a thing or two. 

Lah-di-dah... right?

Oh but wait a minute... not-so-fast my friends; in today's news, Deadline reports that Patton will play Denzel’s love interest.

Well then... if I recall correctly, didn't they have a little thing going on in Deja Vu (photo above) back in 2006?

I'll duck for the tomatoes being thrown because Denzel's being paired with a young broad :)
