Just like the American intelligence Establishment, Mark Wahlberg will make up for his failure to prevent 9/11 by changing the subject to the Boston Marathon bombing. EW reports that Wahlberg has signed on to produce the upcoming Patriots' Day, a CBS Films docu-drama about the hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. CBS vows the project will be "a very personal look at what occurred during the days when the eyes of the world were on the city of Boston and how a group of contemporary patriots faced this crisis," so get ready for a gripping climax set in and around that boat.
