While he'll be featuring in the self-described "biggest movie of 2014" with "Transformers: Age Of Extinction," the always busy Mark Wahlberg has a number of other movies percolating that are smaller and much more interesting (at least for us). And he's revealed the status of a few of them to the folks at Collider.

So, you might not remember this, but a few years ago, David O. Russell and Mark Wahlberg were looking to make a feature adaptation of the critically acclaimed documentary "Cocaine Cowboys." The 2006 film centered on the notorious '70s drug dealer Jon Roberts who moved from New York, where he was involved in gangland takeovers of the city's nightclubs, to Miami, where he was set up with a powerful drug cartel. And it seemed like the Russell/Wahlberg project was really coming along. "We’ve the rights of those guys, Jon Roberts and Mickey Munday, and set it at Paramount as well. Evan Wright did a pass on the script and will have somebody else doing another," Walhberg said at the time. But the filmmaker and actor fell out, with both moving on to other separate things, but it seems Wahlberg really wants to make the movie about this story.
