Deepwater Horizon Film Coming in 2016

It looks like we’ll be getting another movie featuring Mark Wahlberg saving the day.  Well, that’s what I’m assuming considering the fact that he’s always playing the hero.  Anyway, Summit has just announced a September 2016 release date for their upcoming Deepwater Horizon film.

DEEPWATER HORIZON will open in wide release on September 30, 2016, from Summit Entertainment

From Summit Entertainment.  Based on the true events that occurred on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010, the story chronicles the courage of those who worked on the Deepwater Horizon and the extreme moments of bravery and survival in the face of what would become one of the biggest man-made disasters in world history.

In the meantime, the real drama is unfolding as BP continues to try to shirk its responsibilities.  I hope they put that in the film.
