Netflix has revealed the trailer and poster for Spenser Confidential, the Peter Berg-directed action comedy coming to the streaming service on March 6, 2020. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Winston Duke, Alan Arkin, Iliza Shlesinger, Austin Post, Marc Maron, and Bokeem Woodbine.
In the film, 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; Us, M’Baku in the Marvel Cinematic Universe), 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.
Spenser Confidential is inspired by Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins. The film was produced by Neal H. Mortiz, Toby Ascher, Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Peter Berg.
Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg have previously worked together on such films as Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day, and Mile 22.
