Mark Wahlberg Hopes To Make His Boston Community Proud With 'Patriots Day'!

Mark Wahlberg is hoping he makes his Boston community proud with his latest film Patriots Day, which focuses on the Boston Marathon bombings and their aftermath.

“There were three movies being talked about, in various stages of development. They were going to make the movie so I said ‘you know what? I’m not going to let someone else come into my town who’s not going to handle it with the respect and sensitivity that it deserves’,” the 45-year-old actor expressed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday (December 14) in New York City.

“With Peter Berg, who I did Lone Survivor with as well as Deepwater Horizon, I knew how Pete would handle this, with the care and respect that it deserves,” Mark added. “I wanted to tell the story and get it right so I said I’m going to tell the story and get it right and make sure people know what Boston Strong means to make my community proud.”

That same day, Mark stopped by the AOL and SiriusXM studios to promote Patriots Day on BUILD and SiriusXM’s Town Hall Special.
