Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon: Fighters, Not Lovers

Pending a rewrite by "House" producer Paul Attanasio, Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon will probably sign on to star in an upcoming boxing drama called The Fighter. According to Entertainment Weekly, the movie is about "boxer 'Irish' Micky Ward's rise to the lightweight title with the help of half-brother Dicky, a boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded after struggles with drugs and crime." It's no remake of Brokeback Mountain - though I know many of you wish it were; in The Fighter they'll play half-brothers, so the whole romance thing is (hopefully) not going to happen.

The shoot will take place in Massachusetts, which should be nice for both of the Boston-born actors. Check out this NPR interview in which Wahlberg talks about his Boston upbringing. He says he worked hard to lose his Boston accent then had to revert to it for his role in The Departed; I think he did a great job.

I only wish I could say the same for Matt Damon's accent in Good Will Hunting.
