Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play the lead in David Gordon Green’s drama titled ‘Stronger,’ which is set in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.

The film will be taken from survivor Jeff Bauman point of view, who was waiting for his girlfriend to finish the race and lost both legs after two pressure-cooker bombs exploded near the finish line in the 15 April 2013 attack, Variety Magazine reported.

He helped identify the bombers, brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and went on to co-write a book about his experience, on which the film is based.
