In the new flick, which is called Patriots Day and will be out in December, Wolff is set to portray Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of the two brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon back in 2013.

Three people were killed in that horrific attack, with more than 250 others injured, many severely.

Of course, Dzhokhar survived the incident and aftermath only to be taken into custody after hiding in a boat in the backyard of a home, though his older brother and co-conspirator Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police soon after the bombing.

Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Sentenced To Death

Filed under: Legal Matters

no title

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been sentenced to death for his role in the deadly 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

Closing arguments in the 21-year-old's case were made Wednesday, and a jury came to the decision on Friday.

The Boston Bomber was 19 years old when he and his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev planted explosive devices near the race's finish line. Three people were killed and hundreds others were wounded in the attack. Tamerlan was killed in the ensuing manhunt, as well as a police officer.

Last month, Dzohkhar was convicted of all 30 charges filed against him, including four counts of murder. 17 of the charges carried the death penalty.

During the trial, dozens of witnesses — many of whom were maimed or mutilated in the bombing — testified.

The defense argued that Dzhokhar was brainwashed by Tamerlan and asked for clemency, while the prosecution argued that he was a terrorist who deserves the death penalty.

The family of the youngest fatality — 8-year-old Martin Richard — would prefer Dzohkhar spend life in jail. Jane Richard, Martin's sister, lost a leg. Denise Richard, Martin's mom, was partially blinded.

The family is releasing an essay today in the Boston Globe, which is excerpted below:

Accused Boston Bomber Will Be Fighting For His Life In Court; Feds Announce Plans To Seek Death Penalty For Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

Filed under: Legal MattersViolence

boston marathon bombing prosecutors seek death penalty Dzhokhar Tsarnaev execution

If the U.S. Department of Justice has its way, one of last year's Rolling Stone cover boys might be executed.

On Thursday Attorney General Eric Holder and federal prosecutors announced they were seeking the death penalty in the trail of alleged Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev!

He stands accused of making homemade bombs with his now deceased brother, Tamerlan, and detonating them near the finish line of last April's Boston Marathon. The explosions killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

If the terror suspect is convicted and subsequently sentenced to death, his would be the first federal execution in over a decade and the highest profile one since Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh was given a lethal injection in 2001.

In an eight-page statement prosecutors said:
