Denzel Washington told to 'lighten up' for 2 Guns

Jul 28 2013, 4:24am CDT | by Bang Movies

Denzel Washington had to ''lighten up'' for '2 Guns'.

The Oscar-nominated actor is used to playing dramatic roles, so it was quite a challenge for him to embrace the light-hearted nature of his new action-comedy with Mark Wahlberg, according to the film's director Baltasar Kormakur.

He told Empire magazine: ''It was interesting to try to get Denzel to lighten up a little bit, because that hasn't been what he's recognised for. [This movie] doesn't take itself too seriously.''

It appears the veteran actor - who recently earned an Academy Award nomination for 'Flight' - embraced the silliness of his new movie and even suggested scenes in which he and Wahlberg's character fight like little children in the playground.

Wahlberg explained: ''It was Denzel's idea that when kids are fighting, nobody wants to let go or be the first to give up.''

While the action-packed film - which sees the stars play rival government agents forced to work together to solve a major crime - lends itself to a potential sequel, much like action comedies such as 'Bad Boys' and 'Rush Hour', Washington is reluctant about reprising his role.

He said: ''By nature, franchise is a bad word for me. I was asked to do 'Inside Man 2', but it didn't have the magic that the first one had.''

However, Wahlberg - who will star in 'Transformers 4' and a follow-up to hit teddy bear caper, 'Ted' - is more agreeable to a potential sequel.

He added: ''If you can make the second one better or more interesting than the first, great. If not, there's a lot of places you can go to get a pay cheque.''

Antoine Fuqua to Direct 'The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace'

Oct 7 2014 11:16am CDT | Source: First Showing

In an underwhelming reunion, director Antoine Fuqua and Denzel Washington currently have The Equalizer in theaters. While Washington puts in a great performances, it's just too much of a retread of what we've seen him do in Man on Fire to be truly captivating, though the climax is pretty damn good. So with that film in the past, Fuqua is figuring out what his next project will be. There's always something cooking for Fuqua, and n ...
