Director Peter Berg and star Mark Wahlberg may be reuniting for their third film together after LONE SURVIVOR and the upcoming DEEPWATER HORIZON. In keeping with the true tales of perseverance, Variety reports that Berg is close to a deal that would have him direct the Boston Marathon bombing story PATRIOTS' DAY.

PATRIOTS' DAY will represent the first feature film collaboration for CBS Films and 60 Minutes. The screenplay comes from BRIDGE OF SPIES writer Matt Charman and focuses on the book by Boston Police commissioner Ed Davis. Wahlberg is eyeing the role of Davis but nothing is locked in for the actor as of yet.

The tragic bombing of the Boston Marathon has been a hot subject for feature films in development. Alongside PATRIOTS' DAY, director David Gordon Green is helming STRONGER which is based on the account of a survivor of the blast and may star Jake Gyllenhaal. Casey Affleck is circling the film BOSTON STRONG while 20th Century Fox is also developing a film about the attack.

I really liked LONE SURVIVOR and the team of Berg and Wahlberg has been fruitful over the years. The two currently produce the HBO series Ballers on which Berg also appears as a character and DEEPWATER HORIZON has the potential to be really good. Here's hoping this one comes together.

Would be fine with this considering Berg is one of the few directors to actually get a good performance out of Wahlberg.

But out of all of the films mentioned above, I would be most interested in Gordon Green's based solely on the fact that it would star Gyllenhaal and that it seems smaller scoped due to just focusing in one individual's tragic and inspiring story.

Wahlberg is one of the few tough guy actors like James Cagney out there. Obviously you quickly have to google James Cagney and come back and say no you didn't.

I have no problem with his opinion. I have a problem with him talking out of his ass. Sorta like how he is a racist and made comments about Michael B Jordan being another black guy ruining another franchise (Rocky). Or how he has to post on every single article about the same thing. Even when it's something he doesn't like (Game of Thrones) or the endless endless endless posts on Fantastic Four. for a guy who hates fantastic four so much, he has posted on every single article talking about how

For Christ sake!

Is there a Columbine movie in the works? How about one about James Holmes? How about George Hennard? Jesus Christ. Who is feeding the right wing agenda in Hollywood?

ok so we are gonna get TWO films about the Boston marathon bombings? It's kinda like the two films that came out about 9/11 & which one was better? United 93 was the better one & the Oliver Stone tried too hard to be sentimental. Do we really need more movies about real life tragedies? Plus that title needs to be changed, it sounds more like a movie about the NFL team or a Tom Brady biopic.
