The cast for Allen Hughes’ upcoming Broken City is coming together as Deadline reports that Russell Crowe has signed on to star opposite Mark Wahlberg.
The film, written by Brian Tucker, centers on a cop-turned-P.I. (Wahlberg) who is hired by the Mayor (Crowe) to find out if his wife is having an affair. When he confirms that she is, she soon turns up dead and the P.I. is drawn into a vast political conspiracy.
Crowe’s upcoming slate includes The Man with the Iron Fists, a period martial arts film starring, written and directed by RZA. He’ll also appear as Superman’s father, Jor-El in Zack Snyder’s 2013 reboot, Man of Steel.
