- THE PARTNER
Mark Wahlberg is in talks to star in and produce New Regency's adaptation of John Grisham's The Partner, reports Variety. Wahlberg would produce with Stephen Levinson.
Grisham's 1997 novel centers on a disillusioned lawyer who steals $90 million from his law firm, stages his own death and successfully disappears for several years. What at first seems to be a brilliant white-collar crime is further complicated by a murder charge.
