MIAMI – The Governor of Florida Rick Scott has ordered evacuations throughout his state, following news that Mark Wahlberg has just optioned Hurricane Matthew.
Mark Wahlberg has optioned a film treatment of Hurricane Matthew which is due to make landfall on the Florida coast in the next few hours. The news has alarmed many residents and an evacuation of coastal areas is ongoing.
Speaking EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec, a source from the Governor’s office had this to say:
We’ve been tracking this Hurricane for some time as it has gained in strength, going from 3 to 4, but when we heard that Mr. Wahlberg was thinking of making a film about the storm we realized that there was a very grave danger. First, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and then the Boston Bombing, all we could hope is that Will Ferrell wouldn’t come on board.
