Oh, movie stars. They're always attaching themselves to different things like they think they’re some sort of post-it notes. The latest to attach himself like a parasite (that’s what actors basically do, right?) is Sam Worthington. He’s gone and attached himself to an untitled movie that hasn’t even been written yet by Aaron Guzikowski. And they didn’t even have the decency to give us a summary of the plot. All we got is that it will be a “ground space war film.”
So, to recap, we have no script but a writer, no director but a star. The sad part is that this film is actually ahead compared to other films. Worthington doesn’t exactly attach himself to shitty projects (Clash of the Titans aside, daddy gotta get paid somehow) and Guzikowski is an upcoming writer with mad potential. So who knows. Maybe this attachment will turn into something worthwhile after all.
Mark Wahlberg may star in a remake of the Icelandic thriller Reykjavik-Rotterdam, today's trades report.
Aaron Guzikowski is writing the script while Wahlberg is attached to produce with Leverage's Stephen Levinson and Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.
The Oskar Jonasson-directed original is Iceland's foreign-language film submission for the upcoming Oscars, after having swept the Icelandic film awards.
Baltasar Kormakur, the Icelandic auteur who produced and starred in the original, is attached to helm the English-language redo.
The story follows an ex-freight ship worker, fired for smuggling alcohol between Reykjavik and Rotterdam. He struggles as a security guard until his best friend persuades him to sign on for one last crooked job.

Mark Wahlberg is attached to Prisoners, a spec from new-in-town writer Aaron Guzikowski. The scribe, who just signed with Endeavor, has seen his first two weeks in Hollywood pay off with studios said to be clamoring for rights to the Mystic River-meets-Silence of the Lambs-meets-Se7en thriller.
Endeavor is said to prefer attaching a director before making a studio sale. A director is expected to be attached next week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The story centers on a Boston family-man whose 6-year-old daughter and her best friend are kidnapped. He takes matters into his own hands by in turn kidnapping the man he suspects responsible.
Madhouse Entertainment, which manages Guzikowski, is producing.
