Boston Marathon bombing survivor's story to undergo movie adaptation

15 July 2014 4:36 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman's story is to be made into a movie.

Bauman lost both legs at the 2013 event while waiting for his girlfriend at the finish line, after two bombs exploded. Three people died while over 260 more were seriously injured.

His book Stronger - co-written by Bret Whitter - will be adapted into a film by John Pollono, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project has yet to hire a director or cast, but producers Todd Lieberman, David Hoberman and Scott Silver are attached. The trio previously worked on David O Russell's The Fighter, which was also set in Boston.

Lionsgate Takes on Tale of Boston Marathon Survivor Jeff Bauman (Exclusive)

14 July 2014 4:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate has launched development of “Stronger,” the story of Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the attack.

The project has been set up with Mandeville Films principals Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman along with Scott Silver, while Peter McGuigan will exec produce. Lieberman and Hoberman produced “The Fighter,” which Silver wrote.

“Stronger” is based on the book by Bauman and Bret Whitter and details the aftermath of the 2013 attack at the marathon finish line, where Bauman had been cheering for his girlfriend. A photo of Bauman moments after the blast remains one of the best-known images from the tragedy, which killed three and injured more than 260.

When Bauman awoke the next day after surgeries and realized he could not speak, he asked for a pad and paper and wrote, “Saw the guy. Looked right at me,” setting off a massive manhunt.

Here's Mark Wahlberg Losing It Over and Over Again

11 July 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

So, what's Mark Wahlberg's best movie tantrum? I'm partial to his "Boogie Nights" freakouts, but there's an argument for "The Departed" too, i think. Either way: This Yahoo! supercut of Wahlberg's best tantrums will give you a new appreciation for the Oscar nominee.  (If you picked "The Fighter," by the way, I applaud you -- but the best part of that movie is when Amy Adams turns to Wahlberg's trashy sisters and says, "Don't call me 'skank.' I'll rip that nasty hair right out of your f*ckin' head." Just Fyi. Nsfw.) »

8 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Oscar-winning filmmaker Steven Spielberg has taken movie audiences on extravagant adventures of a lifetime during his lengthy course behind the camera when impacting the film industry with his captivating on-screen imagination.
