Actress cast opposite Wahlberg in adaptation
Twentieth Century Fox has set Mila Kunis to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in “Max Payne,” the John Moore-directed action adaptation of the Rockstar videogame.
Kunis, best known for a long run on “That ’70s Show” and voicing the androgynous teen Meg Griffin in “Family Guy,” will play an assassin who teams up with the title character to avenge her sister’s death. Wahlberg plays Payne, a cop haunted by the tragic loss of his family who finds himself in the thick of a conspiracy when he investigates a series of murders.
Beau Thorne scripted. Julie Yorn and Scott Faye are producers. Tom Karnowski is exec producer.
Kunis next stars alongside Jason Segel and Kristen Bell in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” which Universal releases April 18.
