Russell Crowe has had a hard time lately. His last four films -- 'Body of Lies.' 'State of Play,' 'Robin Hood' and 'The Next Three Days' -- have all been inauspicious, though 'Robin Hood' pulled in big boxoffice (no thanks to Crowe's acting). That may be remedied by his next projects, which include his role as Jor-el in 'Man of Steel' and the just announced co-starring gig opposite Mark Wahlberg in the thriller 'Broken City.'

According to Deadline, Wahlberg plays an ex-cop-turned-private detective hired by the mayor (Crowe) of a big city to see if his wife is cheating on him. The private eye confirms those suspicions, and when the mayor's wife's cheating partner ends up dead, the private eye immerses himself in the mayor's business and uncovers a real estate scandal and a lot of big city corruption.
