Actor Mark Wahlberg has agreed to star in the buddy-cop action comedy Partners after treading similar territory in The Other Guys.
The 44-year-old Ted star will play an LAPD detective, who falls for a beautiful woman after a one-night stand, only to discover that she is an FBI agent and his new boss on a high profile case, reported Deadline.
The movie, written by Evan Turner, apparently has a template of Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt-starrer Mr and Mrs Smith, with big action set pieces.
Production house New Line is looking for the right female actor to match Wahlberg, and a director.
Partners will be produced by Leverage Entertainment's Stephen Levinson.
The actor, who is currently shooting Deep Water Horizon for Peter Berg, will next be seen with Will Ferrell in Daddy's Home.
