Father Stu is based on the true story of Long, a former boxer whose life was spiraling out of control before a brush with death in a horrific motorcycle accident caused him to take a life of cloth.

He entered the seminary in 2003 and was ordained a priest of the diocese in 2007, although his life was cut short by a disease called inclusion body myositis.

Father Stuart Long was just 50 when he died in 2014.

Previously, Wahlberg revealed in an interview with the National Catholic Register that he first heard of Father Stuart Long while at a dinner party with two priests in 2016.

He was so moved by the story that he “broke the cardinal rule” of cinema by financing the film with his own money, despite the fact that the film took six years to make.
