Mark Wahlberg isn't waiting around for a green light or even a script for a sequel to The Fighter. He's already drinking Muscle Milk and chasing chickens in preparation for the maybe sequel.
"I got bit by the bug, and now I’m trying to plant the idea in everyone’s head that we should do — not five or six Fighters like Rocky — but one more because the big thing that Micky Ward was famous for was his three epic battles with Arturo Gatti. So we’re talking about possibly taking one more run at it."

"I’ve got my sparring partner sitting right in front of me. We did about ten rounds yesterday. And in between shooting this movie [Contraband] that I’m doing, we had a couple of hours off while they shot another couple of scenes, so we flew back to the hotel, got in our boxing gear, boxed, took a shower, and went back to the set."

Christian Bale is also hard at work on his regimen of smoking crack. (Entertainment Weekly)
