Mark Wahlberg to Play Max Payne?

The man sure does love cop roles...

by | November 9, 2007 | Comments

The third installment of the videogame series might still be in limbo, but Max Payne is coming to theaters — and he might look a lot like Mark Wahlberg when he gets there.

Variety reports that Wahlberg is in negotiations to star in 20th Century Fox’s adaptation of the popular game about a “cop who is haunted by the tragic loss of his family and has little regard for rules as he investigates a series of mysterious murders.” John Moore is set to direct, from a script by Beau Thorne.

Taking on Payne would add to an already-crowded slate for Wahlberg; he recently stepped in for Ryan Gosling on the set of Peter Jackson‘s The Lovely Bones, and will be starring in M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Happening next summer.
