Working Title Films will remake the Icelandic thriller "Reykjavik-Rotterdam" as a potential star vehicle for Mark Wahlberg.

According to Variety, Aaron Guzikowski ("Prisoners") will write the script.

Wahlberg will produce with Leverage's Stephen Levinson and Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner.

The Oskar Jonasson-directed "Reykjavik-Rotterdam" is Iceland's foreign-language film submission for the upcoming Oscars, after having swept the Icelandic film awards.

Story follows an ex-freight ship worker, fired for smuggling alcohol between Reykjavik and Rotterdam, who's barely making ends meet as a security guard until his best friend persuades him to sign on for one last illegal job.

Liza Chasin and Evan Hayes will be executive producers.
