According to JoBlo’s Mike Sampson, Mark Wahlberg is in talks to star in Shyamalan’s The Happening. Mark would be playing Elliot Moore, a teacher and struggling musician. It’s his struggle, along with that of his ex-wife and daughter, that we follow along in the film. The deal is far from done, but he is what we would call “in talks” for the role. Those talks can be very preliminary or very advanced. Keep in mind that publicists like to announce an actor’s next movie as their current movie is getting ready to hit theaters.
Wahlberg’s Shooter opens next Friday. Coincidence?
