Christian Bale is reportedly set to star in the drama The Last Photograph. Pajiba reports that the film is based off an idea from writer/director Zack Snyder. The script is from Synder’s 300 co-writer Kurt Johnstad with Niels Arden Oplev (the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) in talks to direct. The only thing known about the “original idea” is that the drama “revolves around a photograph that becomes the catalyst for a journey two men undertake through war-torn Afghanistan.”
Bale will next be seen this December in David O. Russell’s The Fighter. He is also currently set to star in Terrence Malick’s next movie and, of course, Batman 3. Snyder’s next film, Sucker Punch is set to hit theaters in March 2011, but we’ll be getting our first look at it in a few weeks at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
