Christian Bale to star in Cheney biopic
Hollywood’s former Batman is gearing up to play former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Academy Award-winning actor Christian Bale will reteam with director Adam McKay for a biopic on former President George W. Bush’s right-hand man. The two previously collaborated on “The Big Short,” a film on the U.S. housing market crash.
“In the same way as … ‘The Big Short,’ Adam was able to take a story that most people would go comatose listening to,” Mr. Bale told reporters. “His ability to make it startling and entertaining and intelligent without compromising anything — he’s masterful at doing that.”
