Christian Bale is reportedly the frontrunner to star opposite Jennifer Lawrence in The Ends of the Earth.
It was confirmed last month that Lawrence would reunite with her Silver Linings Playbook director David O Russell on the romantic drama, which is penned by Argo writer Chris Terrio.
The Daily Mail now reports that Russell is keen for Bale to play the male lead opposite Lawrence, with other contenders including Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.
The Ends of the Earth tells the true story of oil tycoon Ernest Marland, who loses his empire after being caught in an affair, with the lead character being his 20-year-old adopted daughter Lydie (Lawrence).
Lawrence and Bale are also set to co-star in another of Russell’s upcoming projects, a currently untitled political drama centring on 1970s FBI sting operation Abscam.

Christian Bale will return as Batman opposite Henry Cavill’s Superman in a Justice League movie overseen by Christopher Nolan, according to an influential US blog.
Latino Review, which has broken a number of stories surrounding the Superman and Batman franchises in the past, says Warner Bros is desperate to bring the team behind the hugely successful Dark Knight trilogy back for its planned superhero ensemble movie. By teaming Bale with Cavill, the star of this summer’s heavily hyped Zack Snyder-directed Man of Steel, the studio believes it could compete with Joss Whedon’s The Avengers II and JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII.
Latino Review says Nolan would oversee the film and sequels in much the same way as he was brought in to “godfather” Man of Steel. Snyder would also produce and possibly direct.
Bale and Nolan had previously said that last year’s The Dark Knight Rises would be their final Batman film. However, Bale told Empire magazine last year he would consider returning for a fourth instalment if Nolan came to him with a great story. • Read full story »

There is no “The Legend Ends” when there’s money to be made … and “The Avengers” to challenge.
Hot on the heels of rumors that Warner Bros. has scrapped Will Beall’s “Justice League” script and is starting the project over from scratch comes word that the film is still very much a high priority at the studio — and that “from scratch” might mean bringing in a tried and true superhero duo to make it work in time to take on “The Avengers 2″ in Summer 2015 (and, in theory, “Star Wars: Episode VII,” though we all know that J.J. Abrams, who took four years to make a “Star Trek” sequel, won’t have it ready by then, right?).
Latino Review, who’s been slinging super-scoops left and right lately, reports that Warner Bros. has brought in ”Dark Knight” mastermind and “Man of Steel” producer Christopher Nolan to “completely take over the DCU [DC Comics Universe] … so anything having to do with these superheroes goes through him now.”
Nolan, like Abrams, is a notoriously secretive fellow, so it’s no surprise that he’s “completely locked it down and it’s gone radio silent over there.” But Latino Review was still able to get an inkling of what’s going on behind closed doors at the Hall of Justice.
As with this summer’s “Man of Steel” (which apparently thrilled Warner Bros. suits at recent early screenings), Nolan will be “Godfathering-slash-producing” the “Justice League” project, with Zack Snyder coming on board to possibly direct. But the real kicker is that the studio is looking to bring back a tried and true superhero star to team up with a brand new one in the film.
Yes, “Justice League” is perhaps being shaped as a team-up for Christian Bale to reprise his role as Batman and join “Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill as Superman.
That makes for some pretty extreme fanboy wishful thinking. It also makes complete business sense, whether it’s true or not.
Warner Bros. doesn’t have “Harry Potter” any more, and they’ve just wrapped up “The Dark Knight.” They’re feeling the pressure of Disney’s “The Avengers” ready to take another bajillion dollars at the box office in a couple of years, as well as “Star Wars” poised to once again take over the galaxy. Would-be WB franchise kickstarters “Beautiful Creatures” and “Jack the Giant Slayer” have both tanked this year, and it’s only early March.
Warner Bros. is freaking out. They need a hit. And, as the Justice League’s motto is “No Fear,” the superhero team-up might indeed hold the key to a bright future, one in which the studio can truly compete (or at least co-exist) with the likes of “The Avengers” and “Star Wars.”
WB is very happy with “Man of Steel,” so apparently the Nolan/Snyder team works well. But in order for “Justice League” to really be a sure thing, they need to bring back the guy who starred in two superhero movies that grossed more than a billion dollars each in worldwide box office. They need Bale as Batman.
Sure, Bale let it be known last summer that “The Dark Knight Rises” was (most likely) going to make for his final gig as the Caped Crusader. But he also went on record as saying, well, never say never.
“My understanding is that this ["The Dark Knight Rises'] is the last one. I think it’s appropriate, I think it’s going out at the right time,” said Bale in an interview with Empire Magazine. “But … if Chris [Nolan] came to me with a script and said, ‘You know what? There is another story’ then I would love the challenge of making a fourth one work.”
Christian Bale as Batman and Henry Cavill as Superman in a Christopher Nolan-produced (and possibly Zack Snyder-directed) “Justice League” movie? You’d go see that, right?
To quote Latino Review again, such a thing would indeed be “quite the muscular defense to Disney’s juggernaut offense.” But is it actually going to happen? Stay tuned, Justice Leaguers.

Jennifer Lawrence has been tapped to star opposite Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner in the David O Russell pic formerly known as American Bullshit, the drama written by Eric Singer and Russell about the ’70s FBI sting operation Abscam that took down a bunch of U.S. congressmen.
That puts Lawrence back in business with Russell and Cooper, her cohorts on The Weinstein Company’s Silver Linings Playbook that landed them all Oscar nominations; she already has won the SAG Award and a Golden Globe for the role.
She will play Bale’s wife in the Abscam movie, which is being produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle through Atlas Entertainment, which developed the film at Sony Pictures. The ensemble is being fully financed by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures. Ellison also is producing and has been developing the script.
I’ve added new photoshoots of Christian Bale did for the ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ movie last year to the gallery! Thanks to Baleheadsblog for them!
