Officials from UMass Dartmouth said they will not allow the upcoming movie "Patriots Day" to be filmed on their campus.
The movie is based on the Boston Marathon bombings and is produced by Dorchester native Mark Wahlberg, who will also star in the movie. UMass Darthmouth is part of the story because bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended the school at the time of attack.
School Chancellor Gerry Kavanaugh released a statement about the decision:
"We have concluded that the production activities would be too disruptive to our campus community. We are hopeful that the movie does justice to the many courageous victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy and their families, as well as the public safety officers who demonstrated such selfless activities."
