Mark Wahlberg to produce Bait and Switch?

Mark Wahlberg is being lined up to produce a new film.

Universal Pictures have bought the rights for the film and are believed to be keen for the ‘Max Payne’ actor to take the bait for the action-comedy motion picture.

Details of the movie are under wraps, but if it is half as good as ‘The Fighter’ or his production of TV series ‘Entourage’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire’ then we could all be on to a winner, including Mark.

Matthew J. O’Neill has penned the spec script for the movie, which ‘Role Models’ and ‘Your Highness’ producer Scott Stuber has been lined up to work on, alongside John Jacobs, Stephen Levinson and executive producer Zac Unterman.

Let’s hope the movie lives up to the high standards Mark has set himself in his producing career, which also includes executive producer work on ‘How To Make It In America’.

I’m waiting with baited breath for the script details.
