Mark Wahlberg - Mark Wahlberg Planning The Fighter Sequel

Mark Wahlberg is keen to do a sequel to 'The Fighter'.

The actor - who starred as lead character 'Irish' Micky Ward in the movie, which won Best Supporting Actor and Actress Oscars for Christian Bale and Melissa Leo respectively - wants everyone to get on board with a second film because of the true story behind the boxing legend.

He said: "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."

Mark also believes the original cast would be keen to get involved, including Amy Adams, because they all had such a good time on set.

He told Entertainment Weekly: "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."
