Mark Wahlberg is certainly keeping busy lately. His newest film Mile 22 is due out in theaters this August and he’s already started working on a sequel. In addition, Wahlberg and his Mile 22 partner Peter Berg have signed on for Netflix’s next feature film Wonderland.
Netflix’s Wonderland is being adapted from Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland, a New York Times Best Seller written by Ace Atkins. The book is part of the Spenser Series which was appropriately named after a fictional character in the series. The titular character has been the basis for a total of 48 novels, all New York Times Best Sellers. The Spenser Series was originally written by Parker and then later on by Atkins.
Wonderland will tell the story of a man named Spenser who, fresh out of prison, is sucked back into Boston’s underbelly as he uncovers the truth about a sensational murder and the twisted conspiracy behind it.
With a script written by Sean O’Keefe, Berg is attached as director and Wahlberg will star in the feature. Neal H. Moritz is producing under his Original Film banner alongside Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Berg under his Film 44 banner. Toby Ascher is executive producing alongside Film 44’s John Logan Pierson
Netflix’s Wonderland marks the fifth feature film collaboration between Wahlberg and Berg. Their previous team-ups include Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day and now Mile 22.
In Mile 22, Wahlberg plays CIA operative James Silva who, along with a top-secret tactical command team, has been tasked with retrieving and transporting an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in on them. The film also stars Lauren Cohan, Iko Uwais, Ronda Rousey, and John Malkovich and will be hitting theaters on August 3, 2018.
Netflix’s Wonderland does not yet have a release date.
