Bale talks Fighter
Probably the most embarrassing day of my life was when my brother (favorite movie: NEVER BACK DOWN, all-time. Favorite movie, all time) knew that Christian Bale was in THE FIGHTER before I did. He knew this because he saw him and Marky Mark hanging out watching boxer and pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao work with Freddie Roach at the Wildcard Gym. So I don't like to talk about this movie. But Christian Bale is. Apparently it's coming pretty soon.
Collider caught up with him and he said that we might start within a couple of weeks. (Talking about the film:) a true story of two incredibly gifted boxers who were half-brothers. The one, Dicky Eklund, who fought Sugar Ray Leonard at a very young age, when he was twenty one, was an incredible natural talent. He lived a very hard life. Then he came to train his brother, Irish Mickey Ward, to the world title.
Mark Wahlberg will be playing Ward, and Bale, Eklund. Which is cool I think. It feels like it will be a more interesting role for Bale rather than being the square opposite other people/things being cool. It's much the reverse of the relationship that I have with the rest of the world, as I often find myself the only cool person among the boring.
|Extra Tidbit:||Bale also says that there is nothing to be said about another BATMAN or TERMINATOR, right now.|
