With the debut approaching for Safe House, Denzel Washington’s latest action movie in which he plays a cop or FBI agent or something who clashes with a younger guy, Denzel Washington has moved on to considering his next action movie in which he will play a cop or FBI agent or something who clashes with a younger guy. Deadline reports that Washington is currently in talks to join Universal’s adaptation of the graphic novel 2 Guns, talks that will hinge on whether Washington can play a cocky, tersely intimidating cop or FBI agent or something who gets to give the business to a younger guy, like, really get up in his face and let him know who’s boss. Fortunately for Universal, the story would find Washington playing an undercover DEA agent who unwittingly partners with and probably really butts heads with an undercover Naval Intelligence officer played by Mark Wahlberg, thereby satisfying all the prerequisites for a Denzel Washington movie. Wahlberg is expected to sign on as soon as producers assure him that he will play an aggravated guy who always looks and acts like he’s having a really shitty week.
