“Mark Wahlberg is in talks to star in and produce New Regency’s adaptation of John Grisham’s The Partner, reports Variety. Wahlberg would produce with Stephen Levinson.
Grisham’s 1997 novel centers on a disillusioned lawyer who steals $90 million from his law firm, stages his own death and successfully disappears for several years. What at first seems to be a brilliant white-collar crime is further complicated by a murder charge.”
“The writing/directing debut from MacFarlane, Ted stars Mark Walhberg as John, a man who, since childhood, has been palling around with his best friend, a teddy bear named Ted (MacFarlane), whom he brought to life with a wish. Now a grown up, John must decide if he should stick with his childhood friend or get more serious with his girlfriend (Mila Kunis). The film also stars Giovanni Ribisi, Patrick Warburton, Joel McHale and Jessica Stroup. It arrives in theaters on July 13th.”
