BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – The forthcoming book "Boston Strong" by Casey Sherman and Boston Herald reporter Dave Wedge will be adapted into a screenplay by two of the Oscar-nominated screenwriters of "The Fighter."

The book is scheduled to be published in 2014 by University Press of New England.

Wedge recently joined the FOX 25 Morning News to talk about the movie and book. He said Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasay have acquired features rights to "Boston Strong." The project will chronicle the city's reaction to the blasts.

The Boston Marathon bombings left three people dead and wounded more than 260.
