Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg reunite for Spenser Confidential – and the first promo has landed.

For his latest movie, Mark Wahlberg is on the receiving end of another hefty Netflix cheque. This time, it’s to headline the movie Spenser Confidential, based on the Spenser For Hire TV show of the 1980s. Mind you, that TV show was also based on the novels by Robert B Parker and Ace Atkins.

Peter Berg reunites with Wahlberg to direct this one, and the first trailer for the movie has landed. Note that the supporting cost includes Alan Arkin, Iliza Shlesinger, Bokeem Woodbine, Marc Maron, Post Malone and Colleen Camp.

Here’s the trailer that’s just landed…

The film lands in March. And we’ll leave you with the synopsis…

When two Boston Police officers are murdered, ex-cop Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) teams up with his no-nonsense roommate, Hawk (Winston Duke), to take down criminals in this action-comedy. Spenser (Mark Wahlberg) — an ex-cop better known for making trouble than solving it — just got out of prison and is leaving Boston for good. But first he gets roped into helping his old boxing coach and mentor, Henry (Alan Arkin), with a promising amateur. That’s Hawk (Winston Duke), a brash, no-nonsense MMA fighter convinced he’ll be a tougher opponent than Spenser ever was. When two of Spenser’s former colleagues turn up murdered, he recruits Hawk and his foul-mouthed ex-girlfriend, Cissy (Iliza Shlesinger), to help him investigate and bring the culprits to justice.
