Mark Wahlberg, Director Peter Berg in Talks for Action Movie ‘Mile 22’ at STX

Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg are in negotiations with STX Entertainment for the action movie “Mile 22” with Wahlberg slated to co-star with UFC fighter Ronda Rousey.

The film would mark the third collaboration between Berg and Wahlberg, who also teamed on “Lone Survivor” and the upcoming “Deepwater Horizon.”

Berg will direct from a script written by Graham Roland. The film follows a CIA agent — played by Rousey — stationed in Indonesia who has to transport an informant from a city to a getaway plane at an airport 22 miles away.

Year-old STX, headed by Robert Simonds, has been aggressively seeking to fill the vacuum in mid-price films. Its first release “The Gift,” starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Joel Edgerton, opens August 7, followed by “The Secret in Their Eyes,” starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor, on Oct. 23.

“The Raid” star Iko Uwais have also been cast in “Mile 22.”

Wahlberg and Berg are repped by WME.

News about “Mile 22” was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
