Mark Wahlberg spent years getting his passion project "The Fighter" off the ground. The same film earned Christian Bale an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor and put Wahlberg even more on the map as a serious actor. The writers behind the film, Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy, now have a new project under their belt. But their not straying too far from the roots of the other film.

Johnson and Tamasy acquired the rights to "Boston Strong", Casey Sherman and Boston Herald reporter Dave Wedge's upcoming book. The book will release next year and deals with the events of the Boston bombing on Patriots' Day and the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Sherman has previously worked with Johnson and Tamasy, as well as producer Dorothy Aufiero, on "The Finest Hours", which was based on Michael J. Touglas' book and is set to release in 2015.

No further details on this project are available but we'll keep you posted as the story develops.
