I’ve added a new movie stills of Christian Bale as Irving Rosenfeld in ‘American Hustle’ movie to the gallery. A new release date for the film has been set. Please read the following quotes.
Following the success of 2010?s The Fighter and 2012?s Silver Linings Playbook, the director will head back into the heart of awards season with American Hustle (in limited release on Dec. 13, in theaters everywhere Dec. 25), a fictionalized film based on the FBI’s Abscam sting operation.
Christian Bale stars as Irving Rosenfeld, a brilliant Bronx con-man whose specialization in stolen art catches the attention of unhinged FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper).
Jennifer Lawrence is on hand as Irving’s loose cannon of a Long Island house wife, Rosalyn, who threatens the entire operation. “Everybody gets to do something we’ve never seen before,” says Russell. “That’s exciting to me.
””Christian Bale’s wife was the first one to get through to him (on set). It was very surreal. It was very upsetting.”
Christian Bale has ruled out playing Batman in a Justice League movie.
It was claimed earlier this year that the Dark Knight star was in talks to join a potential DC Comics ensemble film, although the speculation was denied by writer David S Goyer.
Bale has now told Entertainment Weekly that he has no intention of reprising his role in any future projects.
“We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films],” the 39-year-old explained. “That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy.
“Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying, ‘We’re about to make the third’. We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well.”
On the role of the Caped Crusader, he added: “It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.”
Bale went on to say that he does not know anything about a Justice League movie, which has been heavily rumoured following the box office success of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.
“I have no information, no knowledge about anything,” Bale insisted.
“I’ve literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice League movie, that’s it.”

Sensing it has a movie that can create heat during Oscar season, Relativity is moving the Scott Cooper-directed revenge thriller Out Of The Furnace from October 4 to a limited release on November 27, expanding that run beginning December 6th.
The film stars Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard and Willem Dafoe. Crazy Heart helmer Cooper wrote the script with Brad Ingelsby. Bale plays a simple man in a blue collar job at the local steel mill, who cares for his terminally ill father at night. His brother (Affleck) returns from Iraq and falls in with a ruthless crime ring. When he disappears, that simple man takes matters into his own hands, and sets out to seek justice for his sibling. Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran produced with Scott Free’s Ridley Scott, with Michael Costigan also producing with Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh. This has been a hot project since Ingelsby first sold the spec in a big money deal that came with DiCaprio attached to star and Scott to direct. The elements have shifted, but the Cormac McCarthy-style stark and simple revenge tale element has remained intact.
Relativity production president Robbie Brenner said that Cooper “has made a powerful, moving and brilliant film that we think will generate a tremendous amount of conversation and attention during this awards season. We are confident that this new date will give Scott’s film the platform and support it deserves,” she said.
