STXfilms has set a summer release date for the upcoming Mark Wahlberg film Mile 22
STXfilms has set a release date for their upcoming film Mile 22. The film will hit theaters on July 20, 2018. Directed by Peter Berg (Patriots Day, Deepwater Horizon, Lone Survivor) and starring Academy Award nominees Mark Wahlberg (Transformers film series, Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon) and John Malkovich (Deepwater Horizon, Being John Malkovich), as well as Lauren Cohan (The Walking Dead, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), Iko Uwais (The Raid film series, Triple Threat) and Ronda Rousey (Furious 7, The Expendables), Mile 22 tells the story of an elite American intelligence officer who, when aided by a top-secret tactical command unit, tries to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of a foreign country.
The film was written by Graham Roland and Lea Carpenter. The producers are Peter Berg for Film 44, Mark Wahlberg for Closest to the Hole, and Stephen Levinson for Leverage. John Logan Pierson is executive producing.
Mile 22 has been shooting on location in Atlanta, GA, and Bogota, Colombia, and wrapped principal photography this week. With the property already being developed across STX’s other platforms, including STXtv and STXsurreal VR, the studio and filmmaking team have also begun developing a sequel to the feature.
Mile 22 marks the fourth collaboration between Berg and Wahlberg, a pairing that has resulted in Patriots Day, Deepwater Horizon, and the Oscar-nominated Lone Survivor.
The July 20 date puts it opposite Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!, and Generation Wealth. Until today, Alita: Battle Angel was also opening that day, but it has been pushed to December.
