Mark Wahlberg (The Happening, Planet of the Apes) has joined the cast of Paramount’s Home Invasion, according to Tracking Board. Wahlberg will also be acting as producer alongside Stephen Levinson. The film is written by Aaron Guzikowski.
Pitched as ‘Panic Room’ meets ‘Die Hard’, Wahlberg will play a contractor whose artist wife suffers from an illness that prevents her from being in the sunlight and, as such, he builds a futuristic house that blocks out any natural light. When a band of criminals attempts to break into the house to steal one of his wife’s valuable sculptures, he must evade and outsmart them to protect his home.
Look, they can say Panic Room meets Die Hard all they want but you can’t tell me this doesn’t sound like they watched The Others and said, “That is an awesome concept and we need to use that…with Mark Wahlberg kicking ass.” And you know what? I’m in.
