Mark Wahlberg Confirms Two More The Fighter Sequels

7 Comments

If you were one of those people who thought the possibility of a sequel to David O. Russell’s real-life story “The Fighter” was a big joke, then oh boy, is the joke on you. Mark Wahlberg has officially confirmed that the sequel is very much on, and did it in person at Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards while accepting a win for “The Fighter”, no less.

In fact, according to Wahlberg, it won’t just be a sequel to “The Fighter”, it’ll be sequels, as in, plural, with two more on the way. A trilogy. Check out his speech below. Warning, it’s a tad saucy. As in, he throws a couple of F-bombs during the acceptance speech.

Spike’s Guys Choice Awards airs on June 10 at 9/8c on Spike. More previews of winners and appearances can be found over at Spike’s site. Yes, they’re already telling you who won before the show even airs. I guess that pretty much tells you how seriously they’re taking this, in the words of Mark Wahlberg, mother-effer.

    I loved the movie but why they’re doing sequels is a mystery to me! I thought that they did a pretty good job in telling the story and wrapping it all up. Besides that it also kind of cheapens the first film a bit. Although it was a boxing movie, it was a really well made, well received film with brilliant performances. It wasn’t a summer blockbuster or anything?! Usually it’s only fiction that gets sequels and prequels! LOL!!!

    as a lifelong fan of Micky Ward “The Fighter” stops just were he starts to get famous. The string of fights on ESPN that made him a must see fighter and perhaps one of the best fights ever in the trilogy with Gatti. I’m not sure about 2 more, but there is plenty of at least one

      I agree most fans were upset that the fights with Gatti didn’t make the movie since they are what set him for life & boy were they amazing fights but with that said 2 sequels is crazy i could see 1 but not 2

      If that’s where they’re going with it I say a beefed up John Leguizamo for Gatti!
