Mark Wahlberg to produce hacker thriller

Dec 13 2012, 4:14am CST | by

Mark Wahlberg is to produce an as-yet untitled thriller about a hacker.

The 'Broken City' actor could also take on a role in the Universal movie, which is being scripted by co-producer Jonathan Herman based on a piece written by David Kushner for GQ magazine called 'The Hacker Is Watching'.

The real-life case saw students at a large US high school targeted by a ruthless, skilled hacker who gained access to their computers and managed to set up the webcams on their laptops to film them unawares, as well as sending malware and various other rogue files to the machines.

Mark and Jonathan have previously produced 'Contraband' for Universal and are also developing action comedy 'Bait and Switch' and thriller 'The Disciple Program' for the studio.

Mark can next be seen starring in 'Broken City', '2 Guns', and 'Lone Survivor', and was recently linked with a role in 'Transformers 4'.

Director Michael Bay - who helmed the first three films in the franchise - previously dismissed speculation the 'Ted' star is going to be in the forthcoming movie but the filmmaker has now hinted the 41-year-old star could appear in the motion picture after rumours presented him with the idea to cast Mark.

In a post on his personal website, Michael wrote: ''I squashed a rumor that was on the internet last week. It was about Mark Walhberg. Mark was rumored to be staring in Transformers 4. We are working on another movie together, not T4.

''I had such a great time working with Mark on 'Pain and Gain', and he gave such a great performance - well let's say that very internet chatter gave me some ideas. We are at the inception of our story process right now on T4. Let's say some ideas are gaining traction with me and my writer - so I'm here to say thanks internet chatter.''

Oct 22 2014 12:45pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Mark Wahlberg's performance in The Departed, arguably his best, relied heavily on colorful cusswords. These weren't the sole reason for the greatness of said performance of course, but... what can you say: the Wahlberg cusses well!The lovely thing about the anxiously awaited (at least by the specimen of internet blogger with one, shifty eye on the Oscars) first teaser trailer for The Gambler is that's it's basically built around Wahlberg ...

LOL: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Honest Trailer

Oct 8 2014 5:00pm CDT | Source: slash film

The Screen Junkies team isn’t always mean. When they’re genuinely impressed by a movie, they’re honest enough to say so. But if I’m being honest, it’s more fun to watch them rip a deserving target to shreds. And the Transformers: Age of Extinction Honest Trailer is truly a delight to behold. The video tears into all the obnoxious, nonsensical, and downright stupid aspects of the Michael Bay-directed extravagan ...
