"Fighter" Russell Targets "2 Guns"

According to reports, David O. Russell ("The Fighter") is in early talks to rewrite and direct "2 Guns", a new Universal Pictures feature adapting creator Steven Grant's Boom! Studios graphic novel.

Actor Vince Vaughn is attached to the project.

To be produced by Marc Platt and Andrew Cosby, premise follows a DEA agent and undercover naval intelligence officer who unwittingly investigate each other:

"...'Trench' has targeted a local bank to rob, and asked 'Steadman' in on the job. Trench figures it's a great way to score -- considering it's a cover for criminal money. They'll be thieves ripping off thieves. But what Steadman doesn't know is that Trench is a DEA agent. And what Trench doesn't know is that Steadman's a Naval Intelligence officer. They're both cops! And neither one knows that they're not robbing the underworld, they've been set up to steal $50 million from the CIA!..."
