Michelle Monaghan is set to join Mark Wahlberg and John Goodman in CBS Films and Lionsgate's Boston Marathon bombing thriller "Patriots Day."

J.K. Simmons is also on board.

The movie will be directed by Peter Berg and written by Matt Charman based on the account of former Boston police commissioner Ed Davis. Wahlberg, Scott Stuber, Hutch Parker, Dylan Clark, Stephen Levinson, Michael Radutzky and Dorothy Aufiero are producing the film.

"Patriots Day" will be co-financed by CBS Films and Lionsgate, with the former handling production and marketing and the latter handling distribution. It will bow on Dec. 21, 2016.

The film will follow the events leading up to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and its aftermath, including the city-wide manhunt to find the terrorists behind it. Davis played an integral role in working with the FBI, Watertown Police Department, Boston Police Department, Massachusetts State Police and local first responders to track, identify and apprehend the suspected bombers.

Monaghan will play Wahlberg's wife in the pic.

She can currently be seen on Hulu's new drama series "The Path" and also has the action pic "Sleepless Night," starring Jamie Foxx, bowing this year as well. She is repped by ICM Partners.
