Mark Wahlberg May Star In 'Headhunters' Remake

By AMC February 29, 2012

Actor Mark Wahlberg doesn't shy away from the possibility of remakes. After all, he did star in the January film "Contraband" which was based off the Icelandic movie "Reykjavik-Rotterdam." Now he's looking to dip his feet into the remake pool once again with "Headhunters" which is a Norwegian movie that'll be redone for American audiences thanks to Summit Entertainment. Wahlberg has already talked it up with the production company and he may star, but that's not set in stone at the moment.

"Headhunters" is a thriller that's based off a novel written by No Nesbø. It centers on Roger Brown, a corporate headhunter who's a master of his profession. But one career simply can't support his luxurious lifestyle and his wife's fledging art gallery. At an art opening one night he meets Clas Greve, who is not only the perfect candidate for a major CEO job, but also, perhaps, the answer to his financial woes: Greve just so happens to mention that he owns a priceless Peter Paul Rubens painting that's been lost since World War II -- and Roger Brown just so happens to dabble in art theft. But when he breaks into Greve's apartment, he finds more than just the painting. And Clas Greve may turn out to be the worst thing that's ever happened to Roger Brown.
