Director David Gordon Green has been signed on to direct Boston Marathon bombing film “Stronger”.
The “George Washington” director will helm the drama, which will focus on Jeff Bauman, a survivor who lost both his legs in the attack, said The Hollywood Reporter.
John Pollono has written the script for “Stronger” which is produced by David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman and Scott Silver, who worked together on David O Russell’s “The Fighter”.
“Stronger” will chronicle the story of Bauman who was waiting for his girlfriend at the finish line of the annual marathon when two pressure cooker bombs exploded, killing three people and injuring more than 260 others.
Bauman wrote his experience being a key witness in the trial of bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his attempts at rehab in a book titled Stronger, co-written by Bret Witter.
