The Adventures Of Wyatt McHenry: Mark Wahlberg, who next stars in Paramount Pictures' The Italian Job, is reteaming with the studio on another project in partnership with Icon Productions according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Sources have confirmed that the actor will star in The Adventures of Wyatt McHenry, a manuscript that is to be the first of a series of yet-to-be-published novels by Rick Gibb. Adventures is described as a contemporary Indiana Jones and is about an adventure tour guide who trades in modern antiquities.
Gibb also wrote the screenplay. Icon's Bruce Davidson and Mel Gibson are producing with Wahlberg's management company Leverage Management.
The producers are hoping Adventures could be a series of franchise films built around the character.
Paramount Pictures is also set to release another Indiana Jones themed film tited Sahara with Matthew McConaughey playing the lead charater, Dirk Pitt.
