Bill Paxton holsters up ‘Two Guns’

Will co-star with Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington

Fresh off the success of the History Channel mini-series “Hatfield & McCoys,” Bill Paxton has found his next role as the actor is in negotiations to co-star in Universal’s “2 Guns” starring Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington.

Baltasar Kormakur will helm the pic from a script by Blake Masters.

Pic follows a DEA agent and an undercover naval intelligence officer who unwittingly investigate each other as each steals mob money. Paxton will play a high ranking CIA operative.

Emmett/Furla is co-financing the film with Marc Platt, Andrew Cosby, Ross Richie, Randall Emmett and George Furla producing.

Paxton has remained busy since his critically acclaimed HBO show “Big Love” came to an end in 2011.

He starred in the History Channel mini series “Hatfield & McCoys” with Kevin Costner which became the most-watched entertainment telecast in basic cable history with 14.3 million viewers on its final episode.

Besides “Hatfield & McCoys,” the WME repped Paxton has also stayed busy on the film side with a strong supporting role in Relativity’s “Haywire” and is also developing a remake of the TV series “Kung Fu” for Legendary that he would direct.
