Mark Wahlberg's Boston Marthon Bombing Movie is Pissing People Off
People are not too happy about Mark Wahlberg's Boston Marathon Bombing MovieMark Wahlberg is desperately trying to give the Boston Marathon Bombing the Hollywood treatment, but many people are not too happy. It would seem that the citizens of Boston think they are not ready for a movie adaptation of the attacks:
“How does someone who markets himself as `a Boston guy’ not see that it is far too soon, that the city is still far too sad for its trauma to be transformed into mass entertainment?,” asks Brandeis journalism professor Eileen McNamara. (via)According to The AV Club, There's at least four or five other Boston projects centering around the Boston Marathon Bombing including a movie called 'Boston Strong' and a TV miniseries. Charlotte Wilder over at Boston.com says that this was inevitable, but the timing might be off. We’re still facing the attackers in court and the folks in the area can probably still clearly remember the manhunt that went very public in the days following the attack. People may like Mark Wahlberg a little bit more if the decides to pull out on this Boston Marathon tribute movie. What do you think? Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook.
