Christian Bale to Star in THE LAST PHOTOGRAPH; Based off an Idea from Zack Snyder

     July 6, 2010

Christian Bale is reportedly set to star in the drama The Last PhotographPajiba 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.

    Sorry but I can help but laugh… I am so in LOVE with the sentence “Tthe Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”. The Swedish VERSION… I think you could probably call it the original? ;)

    Its based off of a book, so, yeah, its the Swedish version.

  • SallySuture

    The book is Swedish, too. And the reference is to the film, so 'original' would be more appropriate.
