Mark Wahlberg | Mark Wahlberg directs action comedy The Family Plan


Mark Wahlberg is set to star in action comedy ‘The Family Plan’.

The 51-year-old actor leads the cast of the upcoming film about “a suburban dad who must take his family on the run when his past catches up with him.”

The ‘Instant Family’ star will also executive produce with Stephen Levinson for Municipal Pictures, as well as Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger, reports Deadline.

The film is part of a multi-year partnership between Apple Original Films and Skydance Media.

Simon Cellan Jones is helming the film, and Wahlberg has just worked under him in the upcoming adventure film, “Arthur the King.”

The busy star’s recent films include blockbuster ‘Uncharted’ starring Tom Holland and ‘Father Stu’.

He then joined Kevin Hart in the Netflix comedy “Me Time”.

Wahlberg is one of the most bankable stars in the film industry, but he doesn’t plan to stay in the business forever.

When asked when he plans to leave Hollywood in April, he replied, “Sooner rather than later, probably.”

Wahlberg has Ella, 18, Michael, 16, Brendan, 13, and Grace, 12, with his wife Rhea Durham.

And the ‘Daddy’s Home’ star wants to spend more time at home with her family in the years to come.

Speaking about his approach to future projects, Wahlberg explained, “It’s got to be something special to really get me, you know, to leave the house, to leave these guys behind, because that’s the biggest sacrifice to do for sure.”

It focuses on projects that “help people”.

Wahlberg added: “I feel like this opens a new chapter for me in that now doing things like this – real stuff – can help people.

“I really want to focus on creating more. I wouldn’t necessarily say just faith-based content, but things that will help people. So hopefully this movie will open a door not just for me, but for many other people in Hollywood to create more meaningful content.”
