Oscar-nominated The Fighter screenwriters Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy have optioned true-crime author Casy Sherman and Boston Herald reporter Dave Wedge’s Boston Strong, an as-yet-unpublished account of the city’s reaction to the April 15 Marathon bombings and ensuing four-day hunt for Chechen suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev. Johnson and Tamasy’s prior adaption of Sherman’s 2009 The Finest Hours—his collaboration with author Michael J. Tougias on a 1952 Coast Guard oil tanker rescue—is currently in pre-production by Disney. (Photo credit: Getty Images).
