FILM 1622: PATRIOTS DAY
TRIVIA: The casting call for extras for the film resulted in a line stretching the entire quarter-mile length of Braintree Street in Allston.
First feature film scored by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross that isn't directed by David Fincher.
The films script was merged by two separate scripts. One was called "Boston Strong" and focused more on the action/thriller side of the story. Another was titled "Patriots Day" which was more of a factual drama. The final script was a mix of the two which would have the film be both factually correct and would have some tense action to keep the audience involved and entertained.
After David Ortiz's speech the Boston Red Sox went on to win the World Series that year in 2013.
