This summer, Mark Wahlberg (The Corruptor), Iko Uwais (The Raid 2), Ronda Rousey (The Expendables 3) and John Malkovich (Deep Water Horizon) are going the distance in Mile 22, an upcoming action-thriller directed by Peter Berg (Lone Surviver), which is currently wrapping principal photography.

According to Deadline, Mile 22 tells the story of an elite American intelligence officer who, aided by a top-secret tactical command unit, tries to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of a foreign country.

And the race doesn’t stop at Mile 22. The film will be followed up with a sequel, a scripted TV series and a VR component – all currently in development.

Mile 22 hits theaters on July 20, 2018. See you there!

    I’m upset at the reports that the movie has been changed so that Mark Wahlberg will be headlining. The damn producers don’t think a woman and Indonesian guy can carry a blockbuster.

    This choice was also made before Rousey lost her fight with Holly Holm. I’m sure that made the producers feel better.

    How did the cast find time? Iko Uwai has Beyond Skyline and Triple Threat, Rousey has been getting ready for WWE, and Wahlberg is always in another movie every week it seems.

    I hope Uwai and Rousey have good screen time.

      I’m worried about this one, to be honest. The movie is supposed to come out in 5 months and we haven’t even seen a trailer or clip. This is the ‘Solo’ of martial arts movies!

      After watching Beyond Skyline – which was honestly pretty damn amazing at parts – I sincerely wish Frank Grillo had been cast in the film instead of Mark Wahlberg. Grillo has way more action star cred at this point. (I’m not sure if many people watched it but Grillo’s Netflix movie, The Wheelman, was terrific too)

      That said, I’ve really enjoyed Peter Berg’s output as of late, and if nothing else the man knows how to shoot action sequences. Fingers crossed this turns out to be good.

      • Andrew Hernandez says:

        Oh yes, Peter Berg is fantastic shooting action. That makes me wish it was just Uwai and Rousey since he’d put a unique focus on them.

        With Wahlberg, I know they have a good rapport, but w’ve seen it already.

        It seems like the studio was more concerned with having a “safe” box office star. As for a trailer, who knows? Have new trailers popped up for movies coming out in 5 months before?
