Mark Wahlberg is heading to prison in his next film. The actor is attached to star in Prisoners, a dark thriller that has attracted the attention of many major Hollywood studios in recent weeks. The film was written by Brooklynite Aaron Guzikowski, previously unknown in Tinseltown until his script caught fire in Hollywood circles.
The script concerns a Boston family man whose best friend and six-year-old daughter are kidnapped. He becomes a vigilante who takes matters into his own hands by kidnapping the man he suspects is responsible. Wahlberg is originally from the Boston area, which is said to have heightened his interest in this project.
Studios are currently vying for the film's rights. Once the script is purchased, a director will be chosen.
