It could be our accents – or maybe our gritty neighborhoods – but screen writers just seem to like our crime best. Mark Wahlberg has signed onto another dark thriller set in Boston, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and we’re hearing traces of “Gone, Baby, Gone” in the plot. “Prisoners,” written by Brockton native Aaron Guzikowski, tells the story of a Boston man whose 6-year-old daughter and best friend are kidnapped…he then kidnaps the man he suspects of the crime. Guzikowski reportedly just signed with Endeavor, Wahlberg’s talent agency, and is looking for a director before he signs on with a major studio, many of whom have expressed interest.
