Shooting for the Twentieth Century Fox pic begins next year with John Moore in the director’s chair.

Whalberg is currently in talks to play the lead, a cop haunted by the tragic loss of his family and who has little regard for rules as he investigates a series of mysterious murders.

He finds himself up against an adversary bent on destroying Max and the streets he protects.

Beau Thorne has penned the script for the movie, reports Variety.

On board as producer is Julie Yorn through Firm Films, as well as Scott Faye.

Wahlberg will make the film after he completes “The Lovely Bones” for director Peter Jackson and DreamWorks.

He recently starred for the studio in the M. Night Shyamalan-directed “The Happening,” which will be released next summer. (ANI)
