Mark Wahlberg Interested In Fighter Sequel

The critically acclaimed film might be in training for a rematch.

Actor Mark Wahlberg says he’s been talking with bosses about The Fighter 2 after the movie ‘exceeded expectations’. Wahlberg starred in the movie along with Christian Bale and Melissa Leo, who both won Oscars for their roles in the flick.

In a new interview, he said there are definitely plans for a sequel movie.

“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 Mickey Ward was famous for was his three epic battles with Arturo Gatti.¬† So we’re talking about possibly taking one more run at it.”

Speaking about the movie, he added: “Before we made the movie, I thought we could make a great movie. But I still didn’t imagine it would go on to do all those things – to be that successful at the box office, winning those awards, getting all those nominations. So it definitely exceeded expectations.”
