Variety reports that Marsden has joined 2 Guns as a Naval Commander. The picture stars Wahlberg as a Navy SEAL opposite Washington as a DEA agent who work together, although neither knows that the other is undercover. After they steal millions from the CIA, they’re double-crossed by their associates who will go to any length to retrieve the stolen cash. Edward James Olmos (Dexter) may star as the villain. Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband) directs from a Blake Masters (Brotherhood) script.
THR reports that Woods and Eldard are the latest addition to the Joshua Michael Stern-directed indie biopic about Steve Jobs. The Swing Vote director has been shooting in Los Angeles and Palo Alto since mid-June from a script by Matt Whiteley. Woods is set to play Jack Dudman, Jobs’ former Dean of Students at Oregon’s Reed College. Eldard will play Apple designer, Rod Holt. John Getz (The Social Network) and Lesley Ann Warren (Secretary) have also joined as Jobs’ adoptive parents. jOBS [sic] already stars Kutcher in the title role along with Josh Gad (Love and Other Drugs) as Apple co-founder, Steve Wozniak; Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket) as Apple CEO, John Sculley; and Dermot Mulroney (The Grey) as Mike Markkula, Apple’s investor and second CEO. Look for the film’s debut this winter.
