Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an all-star cast in '2 Guns', an explosive action film that tracks two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together. But there is a big problem with their unexpected partnership: Neither knows that the other is an undercover federal agent.
For 12 months, DEA agent Robert “Bobby” Trench (Washington) and U.S. naval intelligence officer Michael “Stig” Stigman (Wahlberg) have been reluctantly attached at the hip. Working undercover as members of a narcotics syndicate, each man distrusts his partner as much as the criminals they have both been tasked to take down.
When their attempt to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel and recover millions goes haywire, Bobby and Stig are suddenly disavowed by their respective superiors. Now that everyone wants them in jail or in the ground, the only person they can count on is the other. Unfortunately for their pursuers, when good guys spend years pretending to be bad, they pick up a few tricks along the way.
Starring alongside Washington and Wahlberg in '2 Guns' are Paula Patton as Agent Deb Rees, Bobby’s handler at the DEA who further blurs the lines between on-and-off duty; Bill Paxton as Earl, a honey-tongued CIA asset who is even tougher than the men he takes down; Fred Ward as Adm. Tuwey, the Navy bigwig who could be Stig’s last shot at staying alive; James Marsden as Lt. Cmdr. Quince, Stig’s point man in naval intelligence and permanent thorn in his side; and Edward James Olmos as Papi Greco, an underworld drug warlord who is out to make Bobby and Stig regret the day they set foot on his ranch.
Baltasar Kormákur reteams with Wahlberg to direct '2 Guns' from a screenplay that is written by Blake Masters and based on the BOOM! Studios graphic novels by Steven Grant.
