Russell Crowe Joins Mark Wahlberg in 'Broken City'
Allen Hughes is set to direct the independently financed political thriller.
Russell Crowe has signed on to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in Broken City, a political thriller being directed by Allen Hughes. Brian Tucker wrote the original screenplay for the $60 million project, which is being financed and produced by Emmett/Furla Films.
Tucker's storyline involves an ex-cop who is hired by the mayor to look into whether his wife is cheating on him. After the detective confirms the mayor's suspicions, the wife's paramour turns up dead and a larger scandal begins to surface. Crowe will play the duplicitous mayor to Wahlberg's investigator.
Wahlberg, Hughes, Randall Emmett, George Furla and Stephen Levinson are producing.
The WME-repped Crowe last starred in The Next Three Days and Robin Hood. His next films include Man of Steel for Warner Bros. and The Man With the Iron Fists for Universal.
