Wahlberg Tackles Boston Bomb In “Day”

Mark Wahlberg, Scott Stuber, Dylan Clark, Stephen Levinson and “60 Minutes” senior producer Michael Radutzky are all set to produce “Patriots’ Day,” a film about the events of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, for CBS Films.

No director or actor is attached to the project, but Wahlberg himself may take on one of those roles. Matt Charman (“Bridge of Spies”) is writing the screenplay based on the account of Boston Police commissioner Ed Davis.

Davis worked with the FBI, Watertown Police Department, Boston P.D., Massachusetts State Police and local first responders to track, identify and apprehend the suspected bombers.

The project is not to be confused with the other Boston marathon bombing project in the works – Daniel Espinosa’s “Boston Strong” – which is in development at Fox.
