See Heartwarming Reason Mark Wahlberg Was in La Grande
Actor and producer Mark Wahlberg was spotted filming and working in La Grande, Oregon, on Monday.
Wahlberg is working on an upcoming film project about Jadin Bell, a student at La Grande High School who committed suicide and his father Joe Bell who undertook a walk across the country to raise awareness about bullying and suicide.
The movie is about Jadin and Joe Bell that made headlines in La Grande as Jadin, a sophomore at La Grande High School had committed suicide.
Jadin's Father Joe undertook a walk across the country to bring awareness to bullying and sadly was killed outside of Kit Carson Colorado in 2013.
The movie doesn't have a release date yet but has been in development since 2015 by the producers of "Brokeback Mountain" and appears to be filming in La Grande.
It's a tragic story on all fronts with one silver lining: Faces for Change created a scholarship in honor of Jadin Bell.
