Mark Wahlberg Doesn’t Want ‘The Fighter’ Gravy Train To Stop

Tuesday, March 1 by

Last year’s The Fighter is one of the most acclaimed films of 2010, earning two Academy Awards for acting, and nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. So it only makes sense that Mark Wahlberg doesn’t want this feeling to end. At the Oscars red carpet, Mark Wahlberg told “Extra” that “[n]ow we’re gonna talk about doing No. 2. We’re gonna d the Ward /Gatti trilogy and make it real.”

That trilogy of course refers to the 3 fights that are only referred to briefly at the end of The Fighter. They’d make for a good movie, I guess, but I always wince at the notion of doing sequels to movies that stand so well on their own, like The Fighter does. We’ll see if Wahlberg is able to convince Christian Bale to lose all that weight again. (via The Playlist)
