Stronger Movie has begun filming in Boston. The makers have hit a bump in their marketing and promotions. The movie is inspired by the story of a man who lost his legs in the Boston Marathon bombing. The movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Tatiana Maslany.
The real life couple Jeff Bauman and Erin Hurley is the inspiration behind the movie. The couple was dating when the bombing happened. Later, they welcomed a baby girl into the world and got married soon after. However, the whole situation has now got a little awkward as the couple is planning to divorce each other.
Stronger Movie: Big Glitch In Promotions?
The first marketing image of Stronger Movie was released by Jake Gyllenhaal back in May 2016. But the recent development in the real life couple’s life has put a new twist. A spokesman for the Bauman family has also confirmed the news of Jeff Bauman and Erin Hurley getting a divorce.
The spokesman told THR, “Jeff and Erin have decided that it is best to move forward as friends. Though their relationship has changed, their admiration, love and mutual respect for each other will never waver. They are dedicated to loving and parenting their daughter, Nora, and ask for privacy.”

Bauman was waiting for Hurley at the finish line when the bombs went off and he lost both his legs. Bauman also helped to identify the attacker Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He later documented his journey and published a book Stronger.
