Mark Wahlberg takes ‘Prisoners’

Endeavor seeks director for project

Mark Wahlberg will star in kidnap thriller “Prisoners,” a spec penned by tyro writer Aaron Guzikowski.

Story centers on a Boston man who turns vigilante after his daughter and her best friend are kidnapped. Madhouse Entertainment, which manages Guzikowski, is producing.

Endeavor, which reps Wahlberg and Guzikowski, is seeking to attach a director before taking the package out to studios.

Wahlberg committed recently to another project at an early stage as Sony Pictures acquired “The B Team,” a spec pitch package for an Adam McKay-directed action comedy that will team him with Will Ferrell as cops (Daily Variety, Feb. 27). Chris Henchy and McKay will write the script.
