Another day, another Netflix original movie. An upcoming action comedy starring Mark Wahlberg and Winston Duke, directed by Peter Berg from a script by Sean O’Keefe is coming on March 6, 2020. It is based on the best-selling novel “Wonderland” by Ace Atkins, and on the Spenser character created by Robert B. Parker.
Wahlberg stars as eponymous freelance sleuth Spenser, a role famously played on TV by the late Robert Urich. He’s joined here by Winston Duke as partner-in-crime-solving Hawk, who was originally the smooth-talking breakout role for future Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Commander/Captain Sisko, Avery Brooks.
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.
