Now that film is casting, with THR reporting that Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Amy Adams are all in early talks to star in the movie. If it all comes together, Bale would play ‘Cheney, who was an ardent supporter of strong anti-terrorist actions and a key supporter of the Iraq War. Cheney also is the former CEO of the multinational corporation Halliburton. Carell is circling the role of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Adams would play Cheney’s wife, Lynne Cheney.’
There’s little further info on the movie, such as whether it will cover much of Cheney’s life, or solely cover a particular period in his life. He’s an intriguing figure, seen by some as the real President during George W. Bush’s tenure, by some as a war criminal, and by others as a rather inept person (mostly due to an incident where he accidentally shot a friend in the face during a hunting trip). It’s now clear when the biopic might start shooting.
