‘Pride’ goeth at Intermedia

O'Connor to direct gritty NYPD drama

Mark Wahlberg and Hugh Jackman may find themselves kin in Intermedia Films’ “Pride and Glory.”

Talks are ongoing to bring Wahlberg and Jackman onto “Pride,” a gritty drama set in the New York Police Dept. Pic centers on a three-generation family of cops who find themselves tested when one of the sons investigates a case that reveals a corruption scandal involving his brother.

Pic will be directed by Gavin O’Connor (“Tumbleweeds”). Baltimore/Spring Creek will produce the project with Solaris, the production company operated by O’Connor and his brother, Gregory.

“Pride” was written by Joe Carnahan and Gavin O’Connor.

Intermedia picked up the project in turnaround from Fine Line Features, the company that released “Tumbleweeds.”

Prep is expected to begin in two weeks, with an early February start date targeted. They will shoot in New York.

O’Connor, whose dad was a member of New York’s Finest, is repped by UTA. Carnahan is repped by Endeavor and Talent Entertainment Group.

Wahlberg will next be seen in Universal Pictures’ “The Truth About Charlie,” while Jackman stars in Miramax Films’ Christmas release “Kate and Leopold.” Endeavor reps both thesps.
