Mark Wahlberg Says The Fighter 2 Is Happening

The Fighter

I’m not sure why The Fighter should have a sequel, but director David O. Russell has been talking about doing another one almost since the moment the original was released.

Mark Wahlberg has been saying the same thing too, probably hoping to play Micky Ward. again on ring. Now he will.

During the Spike TV Guys Choice Awards, after accepting the prize for “Guy Movie of the Year” Wahlberg announced the sequel. The Fighter 2. The movie will focus on Mickey Ward’s fights with Arturro Gatti, left out of the original film according to Wahlberg, specifically so they’d have material for a sequel.

He said, “We’re not going to do Fighter 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 but we are going to do 2, and we’re going to do the Ward-Gatti trilogy.”
