Mark Wahlberg reportedly spotted in Watertown for ‘Patriots Day’


Dorchester native Mark Wahlberg reportedly was in Watertown Monday night to film scenes for “Patriots Day,” his upcoming movie about the Marathon bombings.


According to WBZ-TV, a sister company of CBS Films, which is producing the movie, Wahlberg posed for photos with fans outside a gas station on Main Street.

It wasn’t immediately clear what was being filmed, but a gas station plays a key role in the timeline of events after the Marathon bombings. A 26-year-old Chinese entrepreneur who was carjacked by Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev three days after the attacks made his harrowing escape from the bombers at a Shell station on Memorial Drive in Cambridge. A few hours later, the shoot-out in Watertown broke out.

The cast includes John Goodman, J.K. Simmons, and Kevin Bacon, and is scheduled to open in Boston, New York, and Los Angeles on Dec. 21.
