While out promoting his upcoming drama The Fighter, Mark Wahlberg revealed to MTV that he plans to shoot Broken City at the end of next year, with Allen Hughes directing.

Here is what Mark Wahlberg had to say about the project:

"There's this other thing, Broken City,' that I want to do... at the end of next year with Allen Hughes directing. It's on the Black List. It's one of the best-unproduced screenplays. It's an amazing piece of material that should attract amazing talents. Hopefully we'll get that thing together. It's a crime, mystery. It's in the same vein as those old classics. Chinatown. Even L.A. Confidential. Films like that."

Brian Tucker wrote the screenplay for Broken City, which is a neo-noir thriller that finds Wahlberg starring as an ex-cop named Billy Taggart, who loses his job after shooting a sixteen year old high school student. Eight years after the incident, Taggart, now a P.I., is hired to investigate the cheating wife of a mayoral candidate.
