Wahlberg's Patriots Day
The Boston Marathon bombing happened only three years ago. Mark Wahlberg (Lone Survivor) is a Boston native, so it is only fitting that he is one of the several A-list stars in this real life acct of one of the most horrific events to impact the northeast United States this decade. Patriots Day will be about the Boston Police Commissoner Ed Davis's experiences and "actions in the events leading up to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing" and the manhunt for the terrorists that executed it. Ed Davis will be played by John Goodman (10 Cloverfield Lane). Along side Goodman and Wahlberg will be Michelle Monaghan (True Detective), J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), Kevin Bacon (Black Mass), and Erica McDermott (Black Mass). Patriots Day will premiere January 13, 2017.
Twenty years have passed since Ewan McGregor played heroin addicted Mark Renton in Trainspotting. So the quest is, will there be a sequel? McGregor said in a recent interview in Scotland that he's up to do a sequel, but has not yet seen a script. He also mentioned that the animosity he had with Danny Boyle (director of Trainspotting) "is a lot of water under the bridge". (cinemablend.com) McGregor also said "I think it might be extraordinary to see a sequel twenty years after the original." So, we know McGregor would li8ke to work with Boyle, but what about JJ Abrams? Well, McGregor did briefly. Abrams request Ewan last minute to do a voice over for The Force Awakens. McGregor says in an interview "I was literally emailed by JJ Abrams...he emailed me out of the blue weeks before the film came out. Like really, weeks, saying, 'I really feel like you should be involved." Ewan replied to Abrams email with a "I've been waiting the call". McGregor continues to show interest in playing the role of Obi Wan again. A project about the Jedi is still in early stage of development. The Force Awakens is out on DVD today.
