Mark Wahlberg Joins Boston Bombing Drama 'Patriots' Day'

31 March 2015 7:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mark Wahlberg is coming on board to star in and produce the Boston Marathon bombing movie Patriots' Day, which CBS Films is putting on the fast track. This new project essentially creates a race with 20th Century Fox's Boston Strong, which has another Boston native, Casey Affleck, attached to star in and produce. We'll have to wait and see which of these movies gets to the starting line first, although Deadline mentions that both movies may be able to start production this year.

Patriots' Day is based on a firsthand account of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing by Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis (Mark Wahlberg), with the help of research and footage shot on the scene by 60 Minutes. This will mark the first time that CBS Films has collaborated on a movie with 60 Minutes. The hope is to find a director in the very near future and lock down a production schedule, »
