Mark Wahlberg to Star in Cop Comedy with a Twist 'Partners'

11 August 2015 8:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Wahlberg has signed on to star in New Line Cinema's buddy cop comedy Partners. The actor is no stranger to the genre, having starred in 2010's unconventional cop movie, The Other Guys, but this project is said to turn the genre on its ear. There will be no "bromance" between these cops in Partners, but quite the opposite.

The story centers on an Lapd detective (Mark Wahlberg) who has a one-night stand with a beautiful woman. He soon discovers that this woman is actually a high-ranking FBI agent, who is his new boss on a high-profile case. The project has been compared to the 2005 action thriller blockbuster Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Partners is set to feature a number of huge action set pieces.

Evan Turner (The Goldbergs) wrote the screenplay, although the project doesn't have a director attached at this time. »

Meet Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla — accidental international comedy superstars.

Today, Smosh is a multimillion-dollar enterprise, counting more than 30 million subscribers across its six YouTube channels, and encompassing merchandise, comics and game apps. The guys are on the vanguard of a trend Hollywood is eyeing closely: They’re starring in “Smosh: The Movie,” a slapstick-y caper in which Hecox and Padilla teleport into different YouTubers’ channels in a quest to delete an embarrassing video of Anthony. The comedy is set for digital release July 24, after a red-carpet premiere in Los Angeles and fan screening in Anaheim, Calif., timed for the annual VidCon online-video confab.

Warning: The following contains spoilers from Mad Men‘s series finale.

Long before we watched Mad Men‘s Don soak up his first “om,” cast member Jay R. Ferguson was part of a very small, very privileged party let in on a huge secret.

It happened immediately following the table read of the AMC drama’s final episode; everyone who’d been there thought the last scene of the finale would be the camera pushing in on Draper as he sat, legs crossed, and meditated on a California hillside.
