Post Malone took the world of music by storm with his sophomore album Beerbongs & Bentleys, and he’s getting ready to leave the same impact on Hollywood. The rapper will make his acting debut in Netflix crime drama Wonderland, alongside Mark Wahlberg.
This promising project is an adaptation of one of the books from the Spenser saga. This series of detective novels was initially written by Robert B. Parker, but Ace Atkins took over from him after the legendary mystery author passed away in 2010.
The upcoming flick will be based on his novel Wonderland, published in 2013. It follows Spenser after leaving prison, finding himself sucked back into Boston’s criminal underworld, as he tries to uncover the truth about a sensational murder and the twisted conspiracy behind it.
Post Malone’s casting attracted most attention because he’s a complete newcomer to this world, but Wonderland boosts impressive cast of experienced performers. In addition to Wahlberg, it also stars Oscar winner Alan Arkin, Black Panther‘s Winston Duke, and Fargo‘s Bokeem Woodbine.
The name of the character Post Malone is going to play is still a mystery, but so is the release date of this intriguing Netflix original. Peter Berg, who worked with Wahlberg on four separate occasions will serve as the director.
