The upcoming crime thriller "Broken City," starring Mark Wahlberg as a former cop-turned-private detective caught in the middle of a murderous conspiracy, has released an early film clip. Here, we see Wahlberg and Russell Crowe in an intense scene where the "Honorable" Mayor of New York (Crowe) sits down with his private investigator, Billy Taggart (Wahlberg) and reminds him that he was hired for a simple task and nothing more. Let's just hope Crowe doesn't start singing in this one.
Directed by Allen Hughes, "Broken City" will open in theaters on January 18th, 2013.
Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) has a promising career as a New York City cop until the night he is involved in a controversial shooting. Stripped of his badge, but kept out of jail by New York's popular Mayor (Russell Crowe), he re-makes himself as a private investigator. Times are tough, and when the mayor offers Billy $50,000 to investigate the First Lady's (Catherine Zeta Jones) extra-marital activities, it seems like a straight forward payday. Unfortunately, it quickly becomes apparent that the Mayor is not at all what he seems, and for Billy to achieve redemption he will have to risk everything -- possibly even his freedom.
