“The Fighter” Follow-up

In today’s Boston Herald’s there’s a staff “off the wire” report that Mark Wahlberg is keeping fit and in training for the sequel to “The Fighter.”

MARK WAHLBERG is already training to film “The Fighter 2.” “Before I made the first one I knew that the second one was in the pipeline,” Wahlberg tells PopcornBiz. “I’d like to do it sooner rather than later, because I’m already training,” he says. “I already sustained another injury. I shattered my knuckle. We’re still training every day.” And while he hasn’t officially cast Christian Bale, Melissa Leo, Amy Adams or director David O. Russell in their trademark roles, Mark doesn’t really mind. “We’ve talked about it,” he says. “They have to. It’s non-negotiable.”

“The Fighter 2” is a highly anticipated sequel – especially up here in the Merrimack Valley. Stay tuned.
