According to an exclusive from Deadline, Academy Award-nominated actor Mark Wahlberg will star in The Family Plan, an upcoming action comedy film directed by Apple and Skydance Media. The film will be directed by Simon Cellan Jones (Years and Years), who was recently involved in the film Arthur the King. The film is currently in post-production with an undetermined release date.

David Coggeshall has written the script for The Family Plan, which will be based on the Mattel toy brand. The film is still in its early stages.

As production for The Family Plan gets underway, Wahlberg is expected to play a suburban dad whose life begins to turn upside down as his past catches up to him, leading him to run off with his family by his side. Dana Goldberg, David Ellison, and Don Granger from Skydance will also serve as producers.

Wahlberg has had a distinguished career stretching back to decades, with the actor starring in several noteworthy films, including Ted, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Deepwater Horizon. Both films received Academy Award nominations for their roles in The Departed and The Fighter, both of which received critical praise. Earlier this year, Wahlberg co-starred with Tom Holland in Uncharted, based on the video game of the same name.

Another upcoming film Wahlberg is linked to is Our Man from Jersey, directed by Julian Farino, in which he will star alongside Halle Berry (Monster's Ball) and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash).

The Family Plan's release date has not been set yet due to the film's progress, but stay tuned at Collider for more updates. Check out our interview with Wahlberg and Holland on Uncharted below:
