Los Angeles - Mark Wahlberg cancelled plans for him and his entourage to fly from Boston to LA on a commercial flight over fears of a terrorist attack on Thursday.

This comes after the Hollywood superstar was booked on one of the flights that was ultimately flown into one of the World Trade Centers. With there currently being a heightened fear of an attack, it seems Wahlberg, 43, was unwilling to take any risks.

In 2001, Walhberg's life was spared by the fact that he decided to take a private flight instead to Toronto, to see the film a friend of his had helped make, thereby reducing his risk of being involved in a terrorist plot.

Walhberg is currently filming scenes for Ted 2, which is also expected to feature Hollywood legend Morgan Freeman and Amanda Seyfried.

Filming for the upcoming movie has kicked off in Boston and will hit cinemas on 26 June 2015 in the US and on 10 July 2015 in the UK.

Mark tweeted a pic on Twitter, posing on an Indian Scout motorcycle to signal the start of filming.

The original flick, which was released in 2012, starred Mila Kunis and grossed $549m worldwide.
