Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are set to team up again for a 2 Guns sequel, if producer Randall Randall Emmett gets his way.

The filmmaker has revealed he will start working on the follow-up to the hit 2013 film in the new year, but admits the project is not yet set in stone.

He tells Collider.com, "I think we're having that conversation. I don't wanna be so bold to say, you know, it's 100 per cent. Of course it comes down to Denzel and Mark and the director, Baltasar (Kormakur), who have to make that decision. We, of course, would love to do a sequel and we are pushing for a sequel.

"I think we have to find the right story..., but I think that we'll probably push forward with a script soon and then hopefully, if the creative powers that be fall in love with the storyline, then we would start to have that conversation."

In 2 Guns Washington and Wahlberg played two law enforcement officers who reluctantly team up to take down a drug cartel.
