AFM: Boston Marathon Bombing Movie Draws Director Andrzej Bartkowiak (EXCLUSIVE)

Andrzej Bartkowiak, cinematographer on “Speed” and director on “Romeo Must Die,” has signed on to direct the indie thriller “Altar Rock,” inspired by the Boston Marathon bombing.

Mark Donadio and Miriam Marcus of Moody Independent will produce the film.

“Altar Rock,” which starts filming next year in Massachusetts, is written by and executive produced by Kristin Alexandre. A. Wayne Carter co-wrote the film.

Aside from revealing that the pic is set in Nantucket, producers are keeping the storyline under wraps.

Bartkowiak’s cinematography credits include “The Verdict,” “Prizzi’s Honor” and “Terms of Endearment.” He also directed “Exit Wounds” and was the DP on “Grey Lady,” starring Eric Dane and Natalie Zea, which was also filmed on Nantucket and partially financed by Alexandre.
