Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol actress Paula Patton is in talks to join Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in 2 Guns, the Universal Pictures adaptation of the crime comic by Steven Grant and Mataes Santolouco, Deadline reports. Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband) is directing from a script by Blake Masters.
Published in 2007 by BOOM! Studios, the miniseries follows a DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who, unwittingly investigating each other, team up to steal money from the mob. Unfortunately they learn too late that the $50 million actually belongs to the CIA. Patton apparently will play Washington’s love interest.
The 35-year-old actress received critical acclaim for her role in 2009’s Precious. She’ll next be seen in Disconnect with Alexander Skarsgård and Jason Bateman.
