Mark Wahlberg had the following to say on a possible sequel to The Fighter, “I weigh about 185. But it’s still solid. Ready to throw down. I got bit by the bug, and now I’m trying to plant the idea in everyone’s head that we should do, not five or six Fighters like Rocky, but one more because the big thing that Micky Ward was famous for was his three epic battles with Arturo Gatti. So we’re talking about possibly taking one more run at it.”
He went on to discuss whether or not the cast would come back saying, “Yeah. Everybody had such an amazing experience making the movie that I can’t imagine they wouldn’t want to go back. But it’s still kind in the early stages.”
And he said this on what Micky Ward and Dickie Eklund thought about a sequel stating, “They’re both thrilled by the possibility. I just keep getting the phone calls… From Micky… saying ‘Make sure you get it done.’ ”
