Ufc fighter Ronda Rousey, who appeared in this summer’s “Entourage,” and Iko Uwais of “The Raid” films are set to costar under the direction of Berg.

The bromance between Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg has been unfolding for a while now. The helmer has taken roles in the Wahlberg-produced HBO series "Entourage" and "Ballers," directed the actor in "Lone Survivor" and the currently shooting "Deepwater Horizon," and they've also got the blockbuster "Six Billion Dollar Man" brewing. And they've lined up yet another to collaborate on. Read More: 'Wild Tales' Director Damian Szifron Will Pen The Screenplay For Mark Wahlberg's 'Six Billion Dollar Man' THR reports that Wahlberg, Ronda Rousey (who starred in the Wahlberg-produced "Entourage" movie), and "The Raid" star Iko Uwais will team up for "Mile 22," with Berg behind the camera. Penned by Graham Roland ("Fringe," "Lost"), the story sounds pretty rote, following a CIA agent stationed in Indonesia who has to take his informant 22 miles from the city to the airport, with, of course, many »

When J.C. Chandor dropped out of directing Deepwater Horizon, star Mark Wahlberg enlisted his Lone Survivor helmer Peter Berg to take over the reins. Now it appears that the duo are planning yet another reteam, this time on a diversely casted actioner set in Indonesia. THR reports that Wahlberg will topline an action film called Mile 22 for Stx Entertainment with Berg attached to direct and produce. Additionally, Ufc champion Ronda Rousey and The Raid star Iko Uwais are also set to star alongside Wahlberg, ensuring there will be plenty of fisticuffs to go around. Written by Graham Roland, Mile 22 revolves around a CIA agent (Wahlberg) stationed in Indonesia who must transport a compromised informant from the center of a city to an awaiting getaway plane at an airport that is—surprise—22 miles away. Standing in their way are corrupt officials, criminal overlords, and heavily-armed locals. [caption id="attachment_460055" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Warner Bros.[/caption] »

Say what you like about Ashton Kutcher's Jobs movie, but it did hold one ace up its sleeve that the Danny Boyle-directed biopic doesn't - an actor who actually resembles the character they're playing.
We take a look at a handful of stars who don't look anything like the real-life people they played.
As brilliant an actor as the Shame star is, it's clear from the trailers for Danny Boyle's biopic that little has been done to make Fassbender look like the man he's portraying. Ashton Kutcher has him beat in that department (as does Noah Wyle if you go all the way back to Pirates of Silicon Valley), but with the talent involved here we're expecting Steve Jobs to be a cut above Jobs.
Intriguingly, prior to Fassbender's casting Christian Bale was circling the role before bowing out due to worries »
With Peter Berg already on board to produce the action thriller Mile 22, you might have wondered whether he’d reach out to Mark Wahlberg about a role. You’d be right to wonder, because Wahlberg is now locking down a deal to star in the film.Word broke back in March that The Raid stalwart Iko Uwais and Ufc champ-turned-actress Ronda Rousey were part of the film, which sees a CIA field officer (Wahlberg) and an Indonesian cop (Uwais) thrown together while transporting a compromised informant from the centre of the city to an airfield 22 miles away. En route, they have to contend with corrupt police and heavily armed locals, all of which we’d guess will make Uwais sigh, raise his fists and say, “not this again…”How Rousey fits in remains to be seen, though we could see her as a member of the squad trying to make it to the plane. »
There’s a scene just before the third act climax in Michael Bay’s magnum opus Bad Boys II where Marcus and Mike are about to head out on a suicide mission, against strict orders, to rescue Marcus’s sister/Mike’s girlfriend Syd. Suddenly, some Swat members walk in and one says, “I don’t know you, but you look like you’re about to do something stupid.” The Swat members then help them on their ridiculous suicide mission.
My name is Dylan Moses Griffin. You don’t know me, but I’m about to do something stupid, and I’m hoping you’ll join me on this ridiculous suicide mission. I am here today to plead the case of Michael Bay as being great in his own totally unlikable way.
There’s hardly a director more disliked, it seems, than Michael Bay. It’s understandable, as the man »

From the tough streets of South Central to the glitz and glamour of Beverly Hills, Los Angeles is what dreams (and traffic jams) are made of. The City of Angels has also served as the backdrop to some of Hollywood's most classic cinematic ventures, and we have ranked the top nine L.A.-centric flicks for your list-enjoying pleasure. Whether its Mark Wahlberg starring as the sex-bomb protagonist in 1997's porn-industry epic Boogie Nights, Ice Cube as a drug-slinging gang member in Boyz n the Hood or even the edgy Hollywood punk inside Nicolas Cage for '80s classic Valley Girl, L.A. has been a supporting character in many a movie-night favorite.

Magic Mike Xxl is now only days away from hitting cinemas. To celebrate the film.s impending release, the erotic adventure of Channing Tatum.s titular dreamer has been re-imagined as a 70s X-Rated flick, and it really is everything for which you could have hoped. You can take in this unique homage to this fallen genre in all of its glory below. Now, if that doesn.t immediately get you interested in Magic Mike Xxl then I don.t think anything will. With its thudding bass, scratchy visuals and creepy narrator, there.s a lot to thank Vulture for. There was certainly a Boogie Nights vibe to the entire clip. In fact, you could easily imagine Burt Reynolds. Jack Horner behind the camera barking directions to Channing Tatum, much in the same way that his character did to Mark Wahlberg.s Dirk Diggler in Paul Thomas Anderson.s 1997 masterpiece. »

Mark Wahlberg, the voice of Seth MacFarlane, Jessica Barth, Giovanni Ribisi, Sam J. Jones, Patrick Warburton and the voice of Patrick Stewart are back.

I will say this upfront, I love this kind of humor. I cut my teeth on the likes of Mel Brooks, who made irreverent movies in the '70s and '80s that could not even be attempted today. Seth MacFarlane comes from that school of comedy. In fact, it would not be a stretch to call MacFarlane this generation's Mel Brooks. In defense of this statement, Brooks' comedy -- in his time -- was often hated on, as he skewered race, sex, religion, politics, and whatever else he could to find laughs. Brooks understood that we laugh hardest when we laugh at the hard truths of the world and when we laugh at ourselves. And it was hilarious each time. Don't believe me, re-watch Blazing Saddles or History of the World Part 1 some time. The "PC Police" would have had that films out of theaters after opening day.

Time is ticking! Mark Wahlberg spoke to Us Weekly at the premiere of Ted 2 in NYC last week about what makes his marriage to Rhea Durham successful. "Spend quality time together," the actor, 44, told Us. "Really, that's what matters." A red carpet observer at the premiere told Us that the parents of four (to Brendan, Grace, Ella, and Michael) looked "very happy and in love" for their night out. The observer noted that Wahlberg held his wife's hand throughout their time on the red carpet outside [...] »
This spring it was announced that "The Hurt Locker" and "Zero Dark Thirty" team, Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal, were moving ahead with their film about Pow Bowe Bergdahl, with Megan Ellison backing the project. That meant their long developing "Triple Frontier" was put on the backburner, but it looks like it's moving again. This time, however, with another director attached. J.C. Chandor saw his slate open up after exiting Mark Wahlberg starrer "Deepwater Horizon," but he's landing on his feet in a big way by eyeing taking over "Triple Frontier," which is still running with Boal's script. Once knocking around town under the title "Sleeping Dogs," the story that takes place in the notorious, titular border zone between Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil called 'la triple frontera,' where the Igazu and Parana rivers converge, making it a haven for crime that's difficult to »

Ted 2 hasn.t quite matched the success of the original. Its reviews have been relatively lukewarm, while its $32.9 million box-office return was around $15 million less than Universal expected (according to analysts). Ted 2 star Amanda Seyfried has got a pretty good idea for how to rejuvenate the stagnated comedy franchise though, because she wants to see Mark Wahlberg.s John Bennett and Seth MacFarlane.s Ted as dads. Amanda Seyfried made this revelation to me during our chat ahead of Ted 2.s release. After I asked if she would like to return for a potential third Ted film, Seyfried insisted that not only is she willing to reprise her role as Samantha Leslie Jackson, but she.d be offended if she wasn.t asked. And to help her seal the deal she.s already devised up the perfect plot for the comedy. Seyfried said of John Bennett and »

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart team up in this comedy about a rich hedge-fund manager who is sentenced to San Quentin; desperate for tips on how to survive prison, he looks for help from a black businessman, assuming he'll know what to do. That's not racist at all! As it turns out, Hart's businessman has never even had a parking ticket, so it's the blind leading the blind. The Blu-ray has tons of extras, including an unrated cut of the film, a gag reel, deleted scenes, and these featurettes: "Just Put Your Lips Together and Blow," "Get Hard Line-o-Ramas," "The Kevin Hart Workout," "Face Off with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart," "-Ferrell Fighting," "A Date with John Mayer, »

Mark Wahlberg originally turned down 'Ted'. The 44-year-old actor has admitted he thought the idea for the film about a talking teddy bear sounded ''absurd'' when he first heard about it, and only accepted the role in the film - which has now been made into a sequel - after he got pressure from people around him. Mark said: ''When you hear about ('Ted') for the first time, it sounds absurd. There's no good way to pitch it. It's ridiculous. So, I was like, 'Absolutely not!' It was one of those things where I was getting pressure from every angle. ''And then, when I talked to another agent about another project that I was producing and looking at one of their clients, they were like, 'I heard you're doing Ted.' I was like, 'What is this thing?''' The 'Boogie Nights' actor went on to read »
