There’s a buzz around town, in the Hall, in the diners and on the street – local and otherwise – about a sequel to “The Fighter.” Most importantly both Mark Wahlberg and David O. Russell are in on it! Wahlberg currently has a few other projects going – the film “Contraband” and other – “Ted” – scheduled to start in May. But in an interview with EntertainmentWeekly.com, Wahlberg makes it clear that a sequel is a possibility and that Irish Micky Ward is on the phone regularly urging him to “get it done.” There was no discussion of a repeat of “on-location in Lowell” – but when asked if the cast would be the same, he noted:
“Yeah. Everybody had such an amazing experience making the movie that I can’t imagine they wouldn’t want to go back. But it’s still kind in the early stages.”
