     September 17, 2010


Every day that goes by without an announced film featuring Kate Beckinsale is a day wasted. Thankfully, today is no such day, as Latino Review reports that Beckinsale will co-star with Mark Wahlbergh in Baltasar Kormakur’s remake of Reykjavik-Rotterdam, freshly titled Contraband. Komakur starred in and produced the original Icelandic 2009 foreign-language Oscar submission, and Aaron Guzikowski is penning the script. The original won five awards from its home country. Here is the logline from Latino Review: The plot centers on a security guard and former alcohol smuggler on the Iceland-Netherlands route who is tempted back into illicit business by a dubious friend after encountering financial problems. Contraband is setup at Working Title.
