Hostiles Scott Cooper Rosamund Pike Christian Bale Banner

Deadline has learned that the lovely Miss Rosamund Pike (GONE GIRL, THE WORLD'S END) will star opposite Christian Bale in HOSTILES, a planned western from Bale's OUT OF THE FURNACE director Scott Cooper.

The 1892-set epic will follow "a legendary Army captain (Bale) who agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back to tribal lands." Pike has been cast as a "widow who undertakes the harrowing and perilous journey after the murder of her family on the plains."

In addition to directing, Cooper is also penning the script based on a screenplay by late Oscar-wining screenwriter Donald Stewart (MISSING, THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER). In a statement, Cooper described his next directorial effort as "a journey of acceptance through the heart of darkness." Filming for HOSTILES will begin this summer, so there will likely be more casting announcements in the coming months.

Pike has several films in pre and post-production, including Brad Anderson's HIGH WIRE ACT (which also stars Jon Hamm) and Cédric Jimenez's World War II drama HHHH.

this sounds great, but because of Gone Girl, I can't look at Rosamund and not see crazy...

yes ! more westerns please !

I dunno if The Revenant is a western, but the success of that film and the success of THE HATEFUL EIGHT, will, I hope bring more westerns. But I doubt it, JANE GOT A GUN was a huge flop, and westerns do not attract young audiences

Out of the Furnace was terrific and an underrated gem. And the last Western Bale did was 3:10 to Yuma. So consider me very excited to see all of these elements come together again.
