Amy Adams Joins Christian Bale in "The Fighter"

Amy Adams Joins Christian Bale in "The Fighter"Submit Comment
Amy Adams (Enchanted, Doubt) is in final negotiations to star opposite Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg in "The Fighter," which David Russell (Three Kings) is directing.

The movie revolves around the life of boxer "Irish" Mickey Ward (Wahlberg) and trainer-brother Dick Eklund (Bale), chronicling their early days on the rough streets of Lowell, Mass., through Eklund's battle with drugs and Ward's eventual world championship in London.

Adams will play Charlene, a tough, gritty bartender and former college high-jumper from Massachusetts who ends up dating Mickey. Melissa Leo (Righteous Kill) also has been cast as Wahlberg and Bale's mother.

The movie begins shooting next month in Lowell.

I love Amy Adams, I hope the movie is worthy, she needs to be careful choosing her roles now, hope her character have something worthy and not just like any female side kick!

It is nice. They'll probably tag-team her in her trailer (IF you know what I mean)!

Who's Amy Adams? This movie should be a pretty cool balancing act. We get to watch Wahlberg carry the movie and watch Bale try to destroy it at the same time.

I watched Ward towards the end of his career, when his best fights against Arturro Gatti took place. Those fights or at least Gatti has to be in the film.

I really hope that bale does not talk thru his teeth in this one as well.
