A Movie About the Boston Marathon Has Already Been Optioned

Of course, one has to wonder whether a film about the event is even necessary, considering each and every one of us watched every awful and heart-pounding moment on television. What more can you provide by a dramatization? It all reeks of exploitation, but then again, we've seen 9/11 done, many times, over the decade, so it's not new.

Anyway, casting the film's protagonist will be decided by a Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Mark Wahlberg cage match over the Charles River.
