Written by George Njuguna on February 16, 2022
This April, Mark Wahlberg will star in “Father Stu,” the true story of boxer-turned-priest, Father Stuart Long. The film, which will premiere on Good Friday, has been in the works for six years, but Wahlberg believes that the story is exactly what the world needs for such a time as this.
Mark surprisingly though, the devout Catholic had not yet done any faith-based film until now though he has done it all — action, romance, drama, animation, comedy – the list goes on.
“People need to have faith and hope. Young men need to know what it’s like to be a real man. And you could list a million reasons – just turn on the news, anywhere you look there are reasons for encouraging people to have faith and to have hope,” Wahlberg said recently in an interview with FoxNews.
“I didn’t know we’d be releasing this movie in a pandemic; I just knew that I needed to make this movie, that this was my calling,” Wahlberg said. “This was my mission and now it’s needed more than ever. Hopefully, it will help a lot of people.”
