CBS Films is handling production and marketing of the project, while Lionsgate is taking care of distribution. Filming is slated to begin later this month in Boston. The goal is to open Patriot’s Day in Boston, New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 21.

Monaghan, who last appeared in Pixels, has Sleepless Night, a Jamie Fox thriller, in the can. The True Detective actress is repped by ICM Partners, Circle of Confusion and Sloane Offer.
