All it takes is one hit to make you a must-have property in Hollywood, and David O. Russell is no different.
Off the back of the success of his brilliant boxing drama The Fighter, the director has already been attached to video game adap Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
Now, he’s been approached by Universal Pictures to rewrite and direct comic adap 2 Guns.
The plot follows a DEA agent and an undercover Naval Intelligence officer who are “unwittingly investigating each other” and pinch money from the mob.
Vince Vaughn has been linked to the project for a while, and appears to still be attached, while Russell is expected to rewrite a script originally turned in by Blake Masters.
With Universal hoping 2 Guns will be an ode to '80s buddy cop movies, this could end up being a fun mob actioner.
