Watch Mark Wahlberg ‘get s*** done’ in the first trailer for ‘Mile 22’

The Dorchester native plays an elite CIA operative in the upcoming film.


The first trailer for Mark Wahlberg’s new film “Mile 22” hit the internet Tuesday, and it seems that that the Dorchester native is once again playing a good guy thrust into a bad situation.

In “Mile 22,” Wahlberg plays James Silva, an elite CIA operative who must safely extract an agency asset who has valuable information. According to Wahlberg’s voiceover, his unit, known as Overwatch, is one that’s called when “the old options” of military and diplomacy aren’t successful.

“According to the government, we do not exist,” Wahlberg says. “We’re ghosts. But we are very real. And we get s*** done.”


“Mile 22” is another collaboration between Wahlberg and director Peter Berg (“Lone Survivor,” “Deepwater Horizon,” “Patriot’s Day”), and the duo reportedly hopes to turn the film into a trilogy.

Co-starring Ronda Rousey (“Furious 7”), John Malkovich (“Con Air”), and Lauren Cohan (“The Boy”), “Mile 22” hits theaters Aug. 3.
