Deepwater Horizon Featuring Mark Wahlberg

Deepwater Horizon Featuring Mark Wahlberg

Superstar actor/producer Mark Wahlberg has tackled dramatic subject matter in the past but his new film project may just be his most important work yet. Production for the ripped from the headlines drama Deepwater Horizon has begun and casting calls for roles in this film depiction of one of the biggest events in recent history are happening now.

Deepwater Horizon will tell the true story of the 2010 explosion of the BP owned Deepwater Horizon drilling rig which killed 11 workers, injured another 17 and was not able to be capped for three months, flooding the Gulf of Mexico in the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. A story this powerful and emotionally resonant requires a cast that is up to the task of telling it and director Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, Very Bad Things,

Wonderland) has begun to assemble one that will no doubt do this tale justice. Oscar nominee Wahlberg (Transformers: Age of Extinction, Lone Survivor, Ted 2) will be joined by Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (10 Things I Hate About You, Jane the Virgin, The Bold and the Beautiful), Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf, The Internship, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials), 2-time Academy Award nominee John Malkovich (In the Line of Fire, Burn After Reading, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and Golden Globe nominee Kurt Russell (Tombstone, Death Proof, Big Trouble in Little China). The film will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Constantine, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Shooter) with a brilliant script written by Matthew Michael Carnahan (World War Z, State of Play, The Kingdom), Matthew Sand (Wake, Ninja Assassin) and Academy Award nominee J.C. Chandor (Margin Call, All Is Lost, A Most Violent Year).

The casting process for this fascinating based on true events film have just begun and auditions will be taking place regularly for various roles all during the production.

  2. Michael

    I believe there is more to this story, rather, this story is bigger than what was reported on the six o’clock news. Not only for the people involved, but the interpersonal politics behind the scenes. Mark Walberg, in my opinion, has always presented his characters forthright and honestly. And this is the reason, besides always a good story, I would like to be associated with a project with his name on it.
