Neither of them are too old for this sh**!

Hollywood has found its latest action movie odd couple as Mark Wahlberg and Jonah Hill are locked and loaded for "The Good Time Gang," according to 24 Frames.

"The Good Time Gang" follows two party-happy mercenaries who decide to take on a more challenging  case involving a terrorist -- only to find their mission getting rather complicated when they find out one of them is related to the target.

The film is apparently aimed to be a new spin on "Lethal Weapon," with more of an emphasis on the action than on the comedy (you know, like the first two "Lethal Weapon" movies).

However, with Wahlberg and Hill on board, there's bound to be some good laughs as well, and the fact that the script is being written by Max Landis, the son of "American Werewolf in London" director John Landis, doesn't hurt the comedy chances, either.

"The Good Time Gang" is still in the early stages of development and no director has been signed yet. That's fine, as the two stars certainly have enough to keep them busy in the interim...

Mark Wahlberg, coming off his acclaimed dramatic turn in "The Fighter," is currently filming Seth MacFarlane's dark teddy bear comedy, "Ted." His new thriller, "Contraband," co-starring Kate Beckinsale, opens March 16, 2012.

Jonah Hill will next be seen in David Gordon Green's "The Sitter," opening Aug. 5, followed closely behind by "Moneyball," opening Sept. 23.

Oddly enough, the highly anticipated big-screen adaptation of "21 Jump Street," which stars Hill as an undercover cop, opens the same day as Wahlberg's "Contraband."

Play nice, fellas.
