Christian Bale Dons A Skullet In David O. Russell’s Next Period Drama (First Look)


David O. Russell has, without a doubt, hit his stride.  Riding high off the huge success of Silver Linings Playbook, he’s re-teaming with some of his actors from the last few films he’s directed.  Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Dawn Olivieri, Jeremy Renner and [a very serious]Louis C.K. will be joining the as-yet untitled project that’s currently shooting in Boston.

According to The Film Stage, the film is…

…Set in the 1970s and following an FBI sting operation, Eric Warren Singer‘s script circles around the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale, is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden.

Christian Bale, who’s mostly stayed out of the limelight since his Oscar win for The Fighter, looks to be staying true to his method principles by gaining a few pounds and pulling off one helluva skullet.  All power to the man, who can pretty much pull off any character, in my opinion.

The film is set to hit theatres (hopefully with a title) on December 13, 2013.
