Hollywood Actor Mark Wahlberg Who Is 'Committed To Serving The Lord' Produces New Faith Film

Actor and producer Mark Wahlberg, notably famous for his roles in The Departed, Transformers and The Very Bad Dads, will start production in Los Angeles in mid-April on his new faith-based film, titled Stu.

The star who openly testified to his faith in an interview with Catholic Herald in 2012, explaining "being Catholic is the most important aspect of my life", has been developing for years this biopic which is inspired by the true story of Father Stuart Long, an athlete turned priest. As Wahlberg explains:

“Stuart Long was a pretty tough guy, a fighter, an American football player… not a mystic at all. He felt called and decided, just after falling in love with a young woman, that he wanted to become a priest. He suffered from an excruciating degenerative muscle disease but still managed to be ordained a priest and ended up leaving us afterwards. "

Wahlberg will star in the film alongside Mel Gibson and has chosen to entrust the production to the young screenwriter Rosalind Ross who will sign her first feature film there.

If this new production based on faith confirms the trend observed for several years in Hollywood with the appearance of many films of Christian inspiration, the fact remains that Hollywood is not kind to Christian actors and that faith-based films are rarely worn by celebrities.

Also, let us pray that this faith movie, courage and redemption could touch many hearts and be a success in America. Also hope he can get out to the movies in France, perhaps thanks to SAJE Distribution. The society SAJE Distribution, distributor of Christian-inspired films in France, whose many films you can discover on their streaming platform thechristianfilm, told us that he wanted to contact Marc Wahlberg about his film. To be continued.
