The Netflix film features all of the above and is coming to a TV/laptop/tablet/phone near you from 6 March.

Wahlberg plays Spenser, an ex-cop who has just come out of prison - a character created by crime writer by Robert B. Parker in the 70s and built upon by Ace Atkins.

The film is directed by Peter Berg, who has previously worked with Wahlberg on Lone Survivor, Deepwater Horizon, Patriots Day, and Mile 22; so the smart money says this movie will follow in a similar vein.

A synopsis of the film reads: "Spenser - 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.

Spenser Confidential Starring Mark Wahlberg And Post Malone Now Streaming On Netflix

"From director Peter Berg, Spenser Confidential is an action-comedy co-starring Bokeem Woodbine, Marc Maron and Post Malone. Inspired by Robert B. Parker's Wonderland, a best-selling novel by Ace Atkins."

It will be interesting to see how Post Malone - real name Austin Richard Post - fairs in the film, though he actually already has a film credit, having voiced a bystander in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

He is of course better known for his on-stage antics than his obscure voice credits. Last October, for example, he chucked $50,000 (£40,000) in cash into the air at a Miami nightclub.

The 24-year-old singer was on stage at E11EVEN nightclub where party-goers were not only treated to a live set from the star, but also a few unexpected extras.

As well as belting out hits like 'Rockstar', 'Psycho' and 'White Iverson', Post also showed up with a water cooler full of $50,000 in singles, which he duly made rain.

According to Page Six, he and his 'massive' entourage then headed over to a VIP table, followed by a 'sparkler parade with cases of Bud Light'.

Sharing photos from the night on Instagram, the club wrote: "50k Money Showers, Beer Bongs and @postmalone Live Performance! E11EVEN [loves] you!"
