Baltasar Kormakur remakes his own Icelandic film in the upcoming movie, Contraband. Kormakur wrote, starred and co-produced the original which was called Reykjavik-Rotterdam.
The plot of the film centers around Mark Wahlberg as a security guard who is trying to turn his life around after getting out of crime. Unfortunately, his wife’s brother gets caught up in smuggling and loses a package that he’s supposed to deliver. Wahlberg gets sucked back into the crime world in an attempt to save the kid. Ben Foster and Kate Beckinsale also star.
Contraband will be out on January 13, 2012.
