2 Guns
Did “2 Guns”… happen? It seemed there was a screening for the new action film. And it had Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg. Or is that just a memory from the overt billboards and advertisements, boasting both stars aiming guns with the title superimposed in front of them. There was some shooting, right? Why does it feel like the memory of this film is clutched in Leonardo DiCaprio’s arms as he whizzes through crumbling architecture to the braaaaaaaams of Hans Zimmer’s score? Should “2 Guns” be explained by Ellen Page frantically asking a series of questions?

John Sayles is still churning out films on a fairly regular basis, and his most recent effort “Amigo” got its limited release in theaters in August last year. Starring Chris Cooper, Garret Dillahunt and Dane DeHaan (“Chronicle”), the film was moderately well received, but grossed a tiny $184k from its release on a maximum of 10 screens. To say it was small would be an understatement. But such is the state of financing these days where guys like Sayles are left on the sidelines. But, keen to keep his fanbase updated with plans for his next film, Sayles has taken to his blog to speak about his upcoming 18th feature.

Veteran character actor Edward James Olmos is set to join the cast of Baltasar Kormakur's "Two Guns." The film sees two of the biggest action stars Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington unite as two lawmen—a DEA agent and a NAVY Seal—who investigate each other as each have been tasked to steal mob money, with James to play Papi Greco, a Mexcian drug lord the two leads run into to. Scribe Blake Masters adapted the story from Steven Grant's graphic novel of the same name with Bill Paxton and Paula Patton also co-starring as a CIA operative and Washington's love interest, respectively.
