Now he’s free of the Bat, Christian Bale has spent time working with Terrence Malick and now he’s looking for new projects and is in talks to star in The Creed of Violence for writer/director Todd Field (In the Bedroom).
The film is adapted from Boston Teran’s novel, set during the 1910 Mexican Revolution. It follows Rawbone, a two-bit assassin, and John Lourdes, a Bureau of Investigation officer, who are forced to work together to penetrate the Mexican underworld. Christian Bale is in negotiations to play Rawbone, although there is no guarantee at the moment that a deal will be finalised.
Last October Leonardo DiCaprio was offered both the Rawbone and John Lourdes roles. It isn’t known if he is still in the mix to play the federal law man, although as there’s no mention of him, probably not. Field is eyeing an early 2013 shoot start. (Source: Variety)
