Catherine Zeta-Jones Joins Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe in BROKEN CITY

     October 20, 2011


Catherine Zeta-Jones is joining the cast of Allen Hughes’ (From Hell) noir drama Broken City. The film stars Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe, and centers on a private detective (Wahlberg) who is hired by the mayor of New York (Crowe) to uncover the identity of the mayor’s wife’s lover. When the lover turns up dead, the detective sets out to expose a much wider conspiracy. Deadline reports that Zeta-Jones will play the less-than-faithful wife of Crowe’s character. This is Hughes’ first solo feature directorial effort, as he previously co-directed all of his films with his brother Albert. The script for Broken City was written by Brian Tucker, and will be produced by Randall Emmett, Stephen Levinson, and Wahlberg himself. Production begins in November in New York.

Zeta-Jones just wrapped Adam Shankman’s 80’s centered musical Rock of Ages starring Tom Cruise, as well as the comedy Playing the Field featuring Gerard Butler. She’ll also be seen in Stephen Frears’ Lay the Favorite alongside Bruce Willis and Vince Vaughn. Crowe is currently filming Man of Steel and is set to shoot the musical Les Miserables early next year.
