Miranda Richardson and Clancy Brown have joined Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany in Lionsgate’s Boston Marathon bombing movie “Stronger,” with production starting this week in Boston.
Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, while Maslany plays his girlfriend Erin Hurley. Brown (“Hail, Caesar!”) will portray Bauman’s father.
The film is a production of Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment label, Mandeville Films, Bold Films and Nine Stories. It’s Gyllenhaal’s first production under his Nine Stories banner.
Inspired by a true story and based on the New York Times bestseller by Jeff Bauman and Bret Witter, the film stars Gyllenhaal as the working-class Boston man whose iconic photo from the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing gained worldwide notice.
