    Mark Wahlberg has signed on to topline and Antoine Fuqua (Training Day) is on board to direct the political thriller Shooter for Paramount Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter.

    Based on Stephen Hunter's novel "Point of Impact," published by Bantam Books in 1993, the story centers on an ace marksman -- living in self-exile in the Arkansas wilderness after causing the death of an innocent person -- who is persuaded by his former associates that they need his help to prevent an assassination. Subsequently double-crossed and framed for the presidential assassination he was trying to prevent, he is forced to go on the run while trying to track down the real killer and discover the truth about who betrayed him.

    Jonathan Lemkin wrote the screenplay. The studio is eyeing a June start date for the di Bonaventura Pictures production. Lorenzo di Bonaventura previously produced the Wahlberg-starrer Four Brothers.

    Fuqua was attached to direct By Any Means Necessary, another di Bonaventura-produced thriller for Paramount. That project appears to be on the back burner now that Shooter has been fast-tracked.

    Rhona Mitra Loads Up For Shooters
    Joins the Wahlberg thriller
    Source: The Hollywood Reporter

    Rhona Mitra, who has just finished working on murder mystery Number 23 with Jim Carrey, is stepping into the line of fire.

    She’s joining the cast of Antoine Fuqua’s thriller Shooters, which already stars Mark Wahlberg and Crash’s Michael Pena. The plot has Wahlberg’s marksman on the run after he’s framed for a presidential assassination he was trying to stop. One of those hot-footing it after him will be an FBI agent with the Spanish-tastic name of Lourdes, played by Mitra.

    Aliasman NEVER makes a post that isn't 100 percent stupid and never in a funny way, just annoying. I seriously wonder if he's just a high functioning ******.

    i think you'd be better off creating a thread along the lines of "am i the only one who did/didn't like (insert obscure movie no one's talked about in at least 6 years here)"

    those seem to be popular this week.

    LOL, back on topic, this flick may have some potential if done well. Whenver they start up that G.I. Joe flick, I would suggest Fuqua at the helm, simply for Tears of the Sun and the battle scenes in King Arthur(notably the only good things about that one).

    Danny Glover Gunning For The Shooter
    Joins the Mark Wahlberg thriller
    Source: Variety[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]Danny Glover, who has been busy acting in movie musical Dreamgirls, will switch soft shoe shuffles for gritty gun action as he joins the Mark Wahlberg thriller The Shooter.

    Glover joins a loaded cast that already includes Michael Pena, Rhona Mitra, Kate Mara and Eliza Bennett in a tale of a former CIA marksman (make that Marky marksman) forced back into action to stop his deadliest rival framing him for a presidential assassination attempt.

    Antoine Fuqua will roll cameras next month on the film, which is based on Stephen Hunter’s novel Point Of Impact.

    It could be good. After The Departed, I've come to like Mark Wahlberg better than I used to.

    :up: i think it looks really good,Wahlberg is someone ive grown to like as an actor and i think he suits this role plus some Danny Glover is never a bad thing and the action looks slick

    Shame the trailer will get slept on due to the Transformers one coming online today

    I actually wouldn't mind Fuqua doing a Green Arrow/Lantern movie when and if they ever get around to it. He's had a couple clunkers, but his resume is pretty decent.
