Mark Wahlberg and producing partner Stephen Levinson (Entourage) have teamed up with Paramount Television on a potential drama series for TNT adapted from the 2007 conspiracy thriller Shooter. Deadline was the first to report the news.
Wahlberg starred in the Antoine Fuqua-directed film based on the Stephen Hunter novel Point of Impact, about a former U.S. Marine Scout Sniper on the run after being framed with murder. The action pilot will be written by John Hlavin (The Shield). In addition to the upcoming Entourage movie, Wahlberg and Levinson are also the executive producers on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and A&E’s Wahlburgers. Paramount TV will also be producing the Minority Report sequel coming to TV on FOX.
