Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg are set to ride with STX Entertainment for the action thriller “22 Miles,” TheWrap has learned.

The script, about a CIA operative responsible for transporting a compromised asset through the streets of Indonesia to a waiting plane, was written by “The Returned” scribe Graham Roland.

UFC fighter Ronda Rousey, who appeared in this summer’s “Entourage,” and Iko Uwais of “The Raid” films are set to costar under the direction of Berg.

Wahlberg and Berg should be plenty chummy by the time cameras roll, as the men are currently at work on Lionsgate’s anticipated “Deepwater Horizon.”

Based on the true events that occurred on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico in April 20 2010, the story chronicles what would become one of the biggest man-made disasters in world history.

“Horizon” costars Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’Brien and John Malkovich. It’s slated to open Sept. 30, 2016.
