Christian Bale, David O Russell likely to join hands for a new film
The duo has previously worked together in The Fighter and American Hustle
Christian Bale and filmmaker David O Russell might join hands once again for a film being developed at New Regency.
Rusell, who has written the script for the untitled film, might direct it as well if things go as per the plan. Bale, who previously starred in Russel's The Fighter and American Hustle, will play the lead role. The Fighter fetched Bale his maiden Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at the 2011 Academy Awards.
Matthew Budman, who served as an executive producer in American Hustle, will produce the upcoming film. The plot details are being kept under wraps.
Bale most recently starred in James Mangold's Ford vs Ferrari. On the other hand, Russell's last directorial was 2015's Joy, featuring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.
