The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Dou­glas Ernst

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.”
