Mark Wahlberg tells Coming Soon‘s Heather Newgen that all the hard yards he’s put in at the gym for Darren Aronofsky’s “The Fighter” might be for nothing.
The “Max Payne” star doesn’t go into details but suggests the film might not be happening.
ComingSoon.net: Have you started shooting that yet?
Mark Wahlberg: No and I don’t know if we’re going to start.
CS: What do you mean? There’s so much buzz about it.
Wahlberg: I know. I keep on training and I don’t know. We’ll wait and see. Hopefully we’ll get a start date one of these days and we can make the movie.
CS: What’s the hold up?
Wahlberg: A whole bunch of things. It’s too depressing to talk about. I get up everyday at 5:00AM to train for a movie that might not even happen. It’s depressing.
CS: How long have you been training?
Wahlberg: Quite a long time. It will be two years tomorrow. They finally got the green light now we have to figure out the cast thing. I’m going to meet with Darren Aronofsky on Tuesday in New York so we’ll see. The great thing about training is that I just keep getting better and better in the ring. Ultimately if I can train for another six months and look like a world class fighter that would be great as opposed to other people who have done it and probably trained for three weeks and then shot it and looked like they’re in a Hollywood movie.
Wahlberg also discussed “Cocaine Cowboys”, “The Departed 2″ and “The Italian Job 2″ and you can read what he had to say about each of them at Coming Soon.
