Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg in "The Fighter"

Posted: April 21st, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg in "The Fighter"Submit Comment
Christian Bale (Terminator Salvation, The Dark Knight) is in negotiations to join Mark Wahlberg in the upcoming "The Fighter" film for Relativity Media. The picture is expected to begin production in July.

"The Fighter" first came together with Boston natives Wahlberg and Matt Damon toplining for director Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler). Damon dropped out and Brad Pitt was poised to replace him, but the picture still stalled. Then Aronofsky moved on. David O. Russell (Three Kings) has since stepped in to direct.

Meanwhile, Wahlberg has continued to train for the pic and is in fighting shape. He will play Boston fighter "Irish" Mickey Ward, a fighter who was losing bouts and was ready to hang up the gloves when his brother came back into his life. Bale will play Eklund, whose drugs and robbery spree drew him a 10- to 15-year sentence in state prison. There, he kicked drugs, became a model prisoner and emerged as a changed man who helped his brother reach the glory that eluded him.

This is now the second project that Bale and Wahlberg are planning to star in together. Earlier this month, it was reported that the two actors would join Bryan Singer's dark thriller "Prisoners."

How many flicks does Bale have on the go then? Hopefully this doesn't end up being one of those quantity over quality things. And Russell with Bale? WAIT!!! Wow, two guys that have had very huge public blow ups on movie sets, in the past few years. Anyone remember that crazy footage of Russell losing his mind w/ Lily Tomlin on the set of I Heart Huckabees? Check it out on YouTube if you missed it.

It will be weird to see Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg co-star in two Boston-set films: "The Fighter" and "Prisoners".
