Mark Wahlberg to Star in Reykjavik-Rotterdam


Mark Wahlberg is set to star in Reykjavik-Rotterdam, a remake of an Icelandic thriller that has been set up at Working Title, says The Hollywood Reporter. Aaron Guzikowski is writing the script, and Baltasar Kormakur, the Icelandic auteur who produced and starred in the original, is attached to direct the English-language version. The plot centers on a security guard and former alcohol smuggler on the Iceland-Netherlands route who is tempted back into illicit business by a dubious friend after encountering financial problems. The original, which Oskar Jonasson directed, is Iceland’s submission for this year’s foreign-language Oscar race.
