Lights, camera … Malden?
On Thursday, May 19 between 1 and 8 p.m., Dorchester native Mark Wahlberg shot scenes for his upcoming flick “Patriot’s Day” at Hugh O’Neill’s, Malden’s neighborhood Irish pub located at 45 Pleasant St.
Wahlberg, who filmed “Ted 2” at the Malden Public Library in July 2014, is filming the made-in-Massachusetts chronicling the Boston Marathon bombings.
Wahlberg stars in the movie as Boston Police Sgt. Tommy Saunders, a composite character based on several people involved with the police response to the bombings.
The all-star cast includes John Goodman, Kevin Bacon and J.K. Simmons.
“Patriots Day” is being produced by CBS Films. It is slotted for a Dec. 21 release in Boston, New York, and Los Angeles, before a wider release on Jan. 13, 2017. –Photos by Paul Hammersley
