6 July 2016 8:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s one of three separate features in the works based on the tragic events of the 2013 terrorist attack – rubbing shoulders with both Boston Strong and indie drama Altar Rock – but it is CBS Films and Lionsgate’s Patriots Day that will sprint into theaters first come December.

Aligning with the recent July 4 celebrations, the studios have now premiered the poignant first poster for Peter Berg’s all-star drama, showcasing a series of shoelaces woven into the style of the famous Stars and Stripes.

At the tip-top of the Berg’s cast list is Mark Wahlberg – reuniting with the director after Lone Survivor – who leads the charge against the suspected offenders as Sgt. Tommy Saunders, a decorated officer in blue described as a “composite Boston Police Department officer who leads the manhunt for the chief suspects.”

Ever the bankable supporting actor, John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane) is also part of the star-studded ensemble, »

5 April 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now entering the final stages of pre-production, The Wrap is reporting that Peter Berg’s Boston marathon drama Patriots’ Day has carried out what is surely the last casting spree before filming gets underway, this time adding Michael Beach, Alex Wolff and Themo Melikidze to its jam-packed ensemble.

According to the outlet, it is the latter two actors that will be playing the role of the radicalized terrorists (Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev) who brought the city of Boston to a standstill in April of 2013. Beach, on the other hand – best known for his recurring role of Pike in The 100 – is on board to portray Deval Patrick, the “governor of Massachusetts when terrorists struck the annual event in 2013.”

Since Berg and his Lone Survivor cohort Mark Wahlberg hatched Patriots’ Day, there’s been a flurry of activity surrounding the project, which quickly found a home at CBS Films and Lionsgate. »
