Tatiana Maslany in talks to star in Boston Marathon bombing movie 'Stronger'
Tatiana Maslany is in negotiations to star in Lionsgate's "Stronger," the film about the Boston Marathon Bombing, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
The film will tell the story of Jeff Bauman, a survivor of the attack who lost both his legs. He was waiting for his girlfriend at the finish line when two bombs went off, injuring more than 260 people and killing three.
Gyllenhaal will play Bauman, while Maslany will play Bauman's girlfriend.
In 2016, she will star in two other movies, "Two Lovers and a Bear" and "The Other Half."
There are several movies about the bombing in the works. Boston-bred Mark Wahlberg is set to produce a movie about the Boston Marathon bombing titled "Patriots' Day" for CBS Films. In November, 20th Century Fox picked up "Boston Strong," helmed by "Safe House" director Daniel Espinosa.
