About Father Stu:
“Father Stu” is a passion project Wahlberg has been working on for six years, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mel Gibson co-stars in the film, while Gibson’s longtime partner, Rosalind Ross, wrote the script and will be making her directorial debut with the biopic.
The film will tell the story of real-life Father Stuart Long who hailed from Helena, Montana. According to Father Long’s 2014 obituary, the priest “excelled” in boxing as a young adult, winning the 1985 Golden Gloves heavyweight title for the state of Montana.
Unfortunately, a longer professional career in boxing was cut short after Long underwent jaw reconstructive surgery in the late ’80s.
In the nearly 20-year road from boxer to man of the church, Long did not live an easy life. He faced several struggles, including a brutal near-death motorcycle accident, as explained in his obituary. – PageSix
