From a based-on-a-true-story drama to an action vehicle... Nothing really brings these two movies together, other than the solid talent being added, so let's get right to it...

You can practically see the marketing department doing backflips already, becuase this one is a no brainer. Combining the stars of three of the big hits of the last few months -- "Contraband," "Safe House," "Mission: Impossible -- Ghost Protocol" -- in the same movie? Slam dunk.

While Liam Neeson is earning all kinds of attention for his recent turn towards a certain strain of B-movie, many forget that Denzel Washington has been using that playbook for years. The two-time Oscar winner has played the multilplex card hard over the past few years with movies like "Unstoppable," "The Taking Of Pelham 1 2 3," "The Book Of Eli," "Deja Vu," and, of course, this weekend's "Safe House." It seems Universal wants to keep Washington in their backyard and pair him up with their "Contraband" star Mark Wahlberg, the easiest no-brainer decision of the year.

Remember that alleged rift between Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell? Despite their three films together -- "Three Kings," "I Heart Huckabees," and "The Fighter" -- and Wahlberg being one of the director's main cheerleaders (unlike, say, George Clooney), there may be something to the rumors. The Playlist spoke to Wahlberg last week and when the subject of Russell came up, the actor became quiet and diplomatic.

Is Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur going to be Mark Wahlberg's new David O. Russell? We'll have to wait and see but it seems the two got along really well on the set of the forthcoming "Contraband" as Variety reports that Kormakur will sign on to direct Wahlberg in the action/comedy "2 Guns."

Even though Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell can't seem to get on the same page these days -- the actor had to drop out of "The Silver Linings Playbook" recently due to scheduling woes -- it still seems the pair are looking over each others' shoulders. At the beginning of the year, you might remember that Russell was attached to rewrite and direct "2 Guns" with Vince Vaughn attached to star. Well, Russell and Wahlberg have swapped the project and Vaughn looks to have moved on.

Says That Buddy Action Pic 'Two Guns' Won't Happen Until After 'Uncharted'Despite the film still without a script (back in December writer/director David O. Russell said it was half done and he's still working on it) casting ideas and story details continue to come fast and furious for "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" for what promises to be one of the most high profile video game adaptations of all time.

Back in the fall, "2 Guns," an action-comedy with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson was announced....and then sort of forgotten. The project was in pretty early stages and while Wilson, at least for now, no longer seems to be in the mix, things are moving forward with some very impressive talent.
