According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Gordon Green has signed on to direct Stronger, the film adaptation of Boston marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman's memoir. Bauman, who was at the race's finish line to watch his girlfriend, lost both of his legs in the attack; he recalled locking eyes with Dzhokar Tsarnaev before the bombs went off, and testified at Tsarnaev's trial. Stronger is the third movie in the works about the 2013 terror attack, alongside Mark Wahlberg's Patriots' Day and Fox's Boston Strong. It is unclear at this moment which movie will be Boston's Antz, and which will be its Bug's Life.
