Mark Wahlberg in talks to shoot 2 Guns

Director David O. Russell and actor Vince Vaughn exit the project

 
Mark Wahlberg is apparently in final negotiations to star in an adaptation of the comic book 2 Guns
 
The Boom! Studios comic was originally signed by Universal Pictures in August 2008 as a vehicle for Vince Vaughn. 
 
However, both Vaughn and director David O. Russell are now thought to have dropped out. 
 
The 2 Guns comic book was written by Steven Grant, with art by Mat Santolouco and follows the stories of an undercover Naval Intelligence officer and a DEA agent who steal money from the mob. 
 
Scheduling problems are thought to have pushed The Fighter director Russell off the movie, as he'll be shooting The Silver Linings Playbook with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper when the 2 Guns production is expected to start later this year. 

Wahlberg in and Vaughn out – is that a good thing? And who should take over helming duties now David O. Russell is out of the picture? Your thoughts below.
