Oil, Oil, Everywhere

They are making a movie outta the Deepwater Horizon disaster, and they want Mark Wahlberg to star in it, folks.

Indeed, the story of the oil rig’s final hour is coming to the silver screen, with J.C. Chandor (All Is Lost) at the helm.

Based on the New York Times December 2010 article that chronicled the disaster, the film will be a survival story that will highlight the courage shown by those working on the Deepwater Horizon that April 20, 2010, when everything shot to s--- and 11 people died and 16 others were injured and, you know, the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history was accidentally produced.

Wahlberg will play the No. 2 manager on site that spring day.
