Back in July it was announced that Mark Wahlberg had been cast as the lead in the adventure film Arthur the King, and now comes word that the project will see him reuniting with his Contraband and 2 Guns director Baltasar Kormakur.
Based on Mikael Lindnord’s memoir Arthur: The Dog Who Crossed the Jungle to Find a Home and scripted by Michael Brandt (3:10 to Yuma), the film will see Wahlberg as Lindnord, ” a Swedish adventure racer who won the hearts of millions when he and his team adopted Arthur, a badly wounded but big-hearted stray dog who tagged along with them during an epic endurance race in Ecuador.”
Filming on Arthur the King is slated to get underway early in 2020. Before then, Wahlberg has his latest Peter Berg collaboration, the crime drama Wonderland, incoming and is also attached to shoot the Antoine Fuqua sci-fi action thriller Infinite.
