Stronger headed to the big screen...
Lionsgate has picked up the rights to the memoirs of one of the Boston Marathon bombing survivors. Variety reports that the studio is adapting Stronger, the story of Jeff Bauman who lost both his legs in the incident and helped the manhunt against the men behind the bombing. Bauman was close to the first bomb and lost his legs; when he woke up days later he immediately passed on information that led to the manhunt before beginning his road to recovery.
The book will be the primary source for John Pollono's script. No director or cast is yet attached.
