Mark Wahlberg to Star in Remake of Icelandic Film

American actor Mark Wahlberg will play the lead in the English-language remake of Icelandic director Óskar Jónasson’s thriller Reykjavík-Rotterdam, Iceland’s submission to the foreign language category at the next Academy Awards, reuters.com reports.

The film features a security guard and a former alcohol smuggler, who are tempted into illegal business on the Iceland-Netherlands route because of financial problems the security guard is facing.

The lead is played by Icelandic actor-director Baltasar Kormákur and he is rumored to be directing the English version of Reykjavík-Rotterdam for Warner Bros. The remake will probably be shot in different locations than the original.
