The first movie starring Mark Wahlberg and Iko Uwais isn’t even out yet however, according to THR “Black List writer Umair Aleem has been tapped to pen the sequel of Mile 22, the upcoming feature that is the latest team-up for Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg.
Mile 22, which is set to hit theaters Aug. 17, follows an elite American intelligence officer who, aided by a top-secret tactical command unit, tries to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country. Along with Wahlberg, the action-thriller stars Ronda Rousey, John Malkovich and Lauren Cohan.
Plot details for the follow-up are being kept under wraps.”
I hope Iko returns to kick more ass.
SYNOPSIS for Mile 22: In a visceral modern thriller from the director of Lone Survivor, Mark 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.
