Mark Wahlberg Signs For 'Billy Jack,' 'When Corruption Was King'

Mark Wahlberg Set For TWO Major New Films

Mark Wahlberg is one of the busiest men in Hollywood, and he just got a whole lot busier.

The star and producer of "The Fighter" has signed on for two new major films; he's agreed to produce, and possibly star in, the Chicago mob movie "When Corruption Was King" (via Variety) and, similarly, produce and potentially star in a remake of the 1971 ex-Green Beret film "Billy Jack" (via /Film).

The two films are somewhat on the back burner; Variety points out that "Corruption" has no start date, and "Billy Jack" is searching for a studio. The timing, though, works out well for Wahlberg.

Along with producing HBO shows "Entourage" and "Boardwalk Empire," Wahlberg has a number of films he plans on producing and starring in. He just signed on to shepherd and potentially star in the action comedy "Bait & Switch," is currently working on Seth MacFarlane's live action, demented teddy bear comedy "Ted" with Mila Kunis, and is working to bring a sequel to "The Fighter" to the big screen.
