Mile 22 featurette takes you inside the CIA’s Ground Branch
STXfilms has released a new featurette for Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg’s upcoming thriller Mile 22, which takes you behind-the-scenes of the CIA’s Ground Branch group, their paramilitary action unit. Check it out now in the player below!
Mile 22 is directed by Peter Berg (Patriots Day, Deepwater Horizon, Lone Survivor) and stars 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).
Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA’s most highly-prized and least-understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in.
The screenplay was written by Lea Carpenter from a story by Graham Roland and 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 producer.
Mile 22 was shot on location in Atlanta, GA, and Bogota, Colombia. 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 film arrives in theaters on August 17.
