Mark Wahlberg Producing Boston Marathon Bombing Movie 'Patriot's Day'

Mark Wahlberg and his producing team have announced their upcoming movie Patriot’s Day, a theatrical motion picture chronicling the events surrounding the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

The story will be based on the first-hand account of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, who “played an integral role in working with the FBI, Watertown Police Department, Boston Police Department, Massachusetts State Police and local first responders to track, identify and apprehend the suspected bombers.”

The story is “envisioned as an intense thriller, spanning the five-day search up to the infamous siege where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was pulled from a boat in Watertown.”

“There is nothing more compelling than a real story populated by real heroes,” CBS Films President Terry Press said in a statement. “The team that we have assembled for this project is determined to give audiences a very personal look at what occurred during the days when the eyes of the world were on the city of Boston and how a group of contemporary patriots faced this crisis.”
