NEW STARS IN ‘WON­DER­LAND’

Boston Herald - - INSIDE TRACK -

A host of stars will sup­pos­edly be swarm­ing our city to shoot along­side Mark Wahlberg in his lat­est movie, “Won­der­land.” And from what we’ve heard, at least one of the Dorch­ester na­tive’s new cast mem­bers might make the flick “bet­ter now.”

For the forth­com­ing Net­flix film, renowned rap­per Post Malone will be among the lat­est additions who’ll be shar­ing the screen with Wahlberg, Va­ri­ety re­ported. The boun­teously tat­tooed artist, who took home Amer­i­can Mu­sic Awards for both Fa­vorite Pop/ Rock Male Artist and Fa­vorite Al­bum Rap/Hip-Hop (Beer­bongs & Bent­leys) just this week, has never caught any cam­era time. So it’s only fit­ting that his cin­e­matic de­but would be with an­other celeb whose ca­reer moved from mu­sic to film, namely Wahlberg.

Be­sides Post Malone, “Won­der­land” will re­port­edly beckon ac­tors Alan Arkin, Bo­keem Wood­bine, Hope Wil­son and James Du­Mont to come to Bos­ton. Co­me­dian Iliza Shlesinger — who worked with Wahlberg on “In­stant Fam­ily,” set for re­lease next month — as well as “Black Pan­ther” alum Win­ston Duke are also on­board. And let’s not for­get, Peter Berg — who’s been be­hind other Wahlberg pro­duc­tions like “Pa­tri­ots Day,” “Mile 22” and “Lone Sur­vivor” — is at the helm as di­rec­tor.

As far as plots go, “Won­der­land” is an adap­ta­tion of Ace Atkins’ novel “Robert B. Parker’s Won­der­land” and fol­lows the fa­mous lit­er­ary char­ac­ter of Spenser. Net­flix de­scribes the plot on its web­site, writ­ing, “Just out of prison and in­ves­ti­gat­ing a twisted mur­der, Spenser is sucked back into Bos­ton’s un­der­belly.”
