[Den of Geek] The Deep Blue Good-bye: Christian Bale was all set to play hard-bruising 'salvage recovery expert' Travis McGee in The Deep Blue Good-bye, but a leg injury he suffered a while ago has not healed sufficiently for him to be able to start filming the action drama next month, as originally planned. It's not known when the project, a possible begining to a new franchise, can resume; director James Mangold is turning his...

Just when Fox thought it was safe to go back into the water and drag the cinematic adaptation of John D. MacDonald’s The Deep Blue Good-By from the depths of development limbo, a knee injury to leading star Christian Bale has forced the studio to scrap plans for a summer shoot, casting doubt over the project’s immediate future.
The Wolverine‘s James Mangold had been attached to direct the maritime thriller and it looked as though this was the property’s best chance to finally leap from the pages onto the silver screen, having assembled a star-studded line-up that included the likes of Peter Dinklage, Rosamund Pike and Transformers: Age of Extinction‘s Nicola Peltz.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Deep Blue Good-By was to be a physically intensive shoot, with Bale stepping into the role of a self-proclaimed salvage consultant who finds himself thrust into a »

Hugh Jackman is set to don the adamantium claws one last time for 20th Century Fox’s upcoming third Wolverine movie, with James Mangold in the director’s chair, and now TheWrap has revealed who’ll be penning the beloved mutant’s final ride: Blade Runner 2 scribe Michael Green.
Mangold will work with Green to ensure that his new take adheres closely to the director’s own vision for the action-packed pic. The scribe has written for Smallville, Heroes, Kings and The River over on the television side of things, but he’s perhaps best known for writing the (rather terrible) Green Lantern. Still, Green has lined up some pretty stellar gigs since then, including a re-write on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2 and a script for Denis Villeneuve’s hotly anticipated Blade Runner 2 (co-written with Hampton Fancher), which may star Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling. He’s also attached »

I'm not sure if you have or know anyone who has torn his or her Acl. It is not a fun time. It happened to my sister a couple of years ago, and she still feels some pain after a bunch of recovery methods, and it would probably be very unwise to start a job that required a lot of movement and action, which is why The Deep Blue Goodbye will not be moving forward at Fox. Christian Bale, who would have been the film's lead, recently tore his Acl before starting production on the Michael Lewis adaptation The Big Short. He is still moving forward on that film, as it basically requires him to stand and sit while talking. The climax for The Deep Blue Goodbye, however, is reported to involve a chase across boats. That would be tough to do with that injury. The film also would have »

Trouble has arisen for the long-developed adaptation of author John D. MacDonald’s novel The Deep Blue Good-By, which is one in a series of very popular Travis McGee books. Director James Mangold was set to reteam with his 3:10 to Yuma star Christina Bale on the project, which revolves around a self-described beach bum and salvage consultant who seeks to protect a woman who’s been torn apart from her manipulative ex-boyfriend. Filming was poised to begin next month in Florida and Puerto Rico, but Bale recently suffered an Acl injury that’s put the project's future in jeopardy. Apparently Bale’s injury prevents him from making the film right now. He's currently shooting the financial crisis drama The Big Short, but The Deep Blue Good-By is a much more physically intensive shoot, as its climax involves an action sequence on boats. Per Deadline, the project has simply been delayed, »

If you were looking forward to seeing Christian Bale leading the adaptation of John D. MacDonald's mystery adventure novel The Deep Blue Goodbye, then we have some bad news. According to THR, Bale recently tore his Acl, which will prevent him from filming the adaptation due to how much physical exertion would have been required for the film, including an action sequence that would've taken place on boats. So for now, 20th Century Fox has put the project on hold, with some sources saying it could be postponed instead of scrapped completely, but the future fate of the film isn't clear at this time. Read on! The film would have been directed by James Mangold (The Wolverine, Walk the Line) with Peter Dinklage and Nicola Peltz co-starring. Production was going to begin next month in Florida and Puerto Rico, but with Bale's injury preventing him from being able to complete action sequences, »

James Mangold is feeling the pain of what happens when you have two high profile productions set to film right after each other. The director of The Wolverine has been prepping the sequel to the Hugh Jackman-led superhero movie while also diving into the adaptation of mystery novel The Deep Blue Good-by with Christian Bale. Mangold was set to complete the Bale led film, eyed as a potential franchise by the studio, and then go right into the potential last film featuring Jackman as Wolverine. »

Try as they might, Hollywood just can't get John D. MacDonald's pulpy Travis McGee books turned into the franchise they want. "The Deep Blue Goodbye" has been kicking around Hollywood for years, with Leonardo DiCaprio (now producing) once eyed to star, and directors like Paul Greengrass and Oliver Stone taking a look. Things seemed to settle last year when Christian Bale signed up, with James Mangold ("The Wolverine," "Walk The Line") at the helm. But it looks like the "3:10 To Yuma" reunion with director James Mangold has been sidelined. THR reports that Bale has suffered a torn ACL which will keep him out of the action thriller. The actor is currently shooting the financial world drama "The Big Short" with Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, and Steve Carell, but 'Goodbye,' which was scheduled to start lensing in May, would've required more fancy footwork. The story follows a “salvage consultant, »

'The Deep Blue Goodbye' has been shelved after Christian Bale suffered a knee injury. The thriller had been due to begin filming this summer but the star has torn a ligament which means he will be unable to work on such a physically-intensive shoot, meaning work on the movie - which also had Peter Dinklage and Nicola Peltz signed up - has been postponed. According to the Hollywood Reporter, it is now unclear what will happen to the movie - in which Bale was cast as an ex-soldier turned self-proclaimed 'salvage consultant' - as some sources say the project will be scrapped completely, while others believe it is merely delayed. However, if filming is pushed to a later date, director James Mangold may need to find a new lead as the 41-year-old actor is in such high demand and is already committed to a number of other projects this year. »
Bale tore his Acl in this knee just prior to shooting his latest film, The Big Short. However, the physical demands that would have come from Good-By were too much for the actor to undertake with his injury, having required some big action set-pieces aboard boats.
James Mangold, who directed Bale in 3.10 To Yuma, was set to direct the film, which had already cast Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) and Nicola Peltz (Transformers: Age of Extinction), and was all set to start shooting in May in and around Puerto Rico and Florida.
What happens with the film in the future remains to be seen, with sources in Hollywood saying the project is either dead or merely postponed until a new date for those involved can be settled upon. »

Filming for The Deep Blue Good-by has been postponed by a year, at the very least! The Dark Knight Rises actor recently suffered a knee injury that is so serious that Fox has decided to delay filming on his next project The Deep Blue Good-by. According to Deadline, Christian Bale was at home when he suffered the severe injury to his knee that consisted of torn knee ligaments. No further details regarding the nature of the incident that caused the injury have been released as of yet. However, what we do know is that the timing of the injury has undoubtedly caused the actor and the movie studio to make a few adjustments as a result, namely regarding the filming schedule for The Deep Blue Good-by. The Deep Blue Good-by, which is the first of 21 novels in the Travis McGee series by author John D. MacDonald, is a lot more »

Little is known about James Mangold's sequel to The Wolverine, though it has been reported that the sequel will feature some sort of team-up between Hugh Jackman's Logan and Patrick Stewart's Professor X. Regardless, The Wrap reports Michael Green is set to write the movie for Fox and is working closely with Mangold on putting the project together. Green is no stranger to the world of comic books after working on Smallville and Heroes, while he's one of the many writers credited for Green Lantern too. He also penned a draft of The Flash a number of years ago, but his most recent projects include the Blade Runner and Prometheus sequels. Mangold's focus is now said to be on The Wolverine 2 (or 3 if you include X-Men Origins: Wolverine) after his next movie - The Deep Blue Goodbye - was put on hold due to an injury suffered by Christian Bale. »
Just when producer Leonardo DiCaprio and the team at Fox thought that the adaptation of John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee novel The Deep Blue Good-By might finally reach screens after years floating in development limbo, along comes a depth charge to once more scupper the progress. Thanks to Christian Bale tearing a knee ligament, the plan to shoot this summer has been scrapped.James Mangold had been gearing up to roll cameras on the movie starting next month in Florida. He has a script in hand and had been busy rounding up a cast to support Bale that included Peter Dinklage, Rosamund Pike and Nicola Peltz.But given the action-orientated nature of the story about a salvage consultant who is lured into a mystery surrounding some very dangerous people and a fortune brought back to Florida by a World War II soldier, Bale’s injury means he wouldn’t »
Christopher Nolan and wife Emma Thomas on the Oscars' Red Carpet Christopher Nolan and wife Emma Thomas at the Academy Awards A very blasé-looking Christopher Nolan, shortlisted as one of the producers of Best Picture Oscar nominee Inception and as the writer of the film's original screenplay, arrives with his wife and fellow Inception producer Emma Thomas at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Of course, Christopher Nolan also directed Inception, but he was not included in the Academy's Best Director shortlist. Instead, nominated were: David Fincher for The Social Network. Darren Aronofsky for Black Swan. Joel and Ethan Coen for True Grit. David O. Russell for The Fighter. Tom Hooper, the eventual winner, for The King's Speech. In case the incredibly successful British filmmaker was disappointed, angered, or downright outraged at being bypassed one more time by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts »

Breaking: The knee injury suffered by Christian Bale is serious enough that Fox will postpone the John D. MacDonald novel adaptation The Deep Blue Goodbye until its director, James Mangold, completes Wolverine 3 with Hugh Jackman. Bale suffered torn knee ligaments in an accident at his home. He has been filming The Big Short with Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt and Steve Carell in New Orleans, but they play stockbrokers and it’s not physically demanding. He plays a salvage hunter… »

20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment have at least delayed and potentially scrapped production on James Mangold's upcoming film adaptation of the pulp adventure novel "The Deep Blue Good-by" due to an injury sustained by star Christian Bale.
Bale was to play Travis McGee, a self-described 'salvage consultant' who recovers others’ property for a fee and along the way gets into trouble fighting bad guys and wooing women.
However, Bale was reportedly at his home in Los Angeles when he tore his anterior cruciate ligament (Acl), a severe injury that will require several months for the actor to fully recover. Shooting was originally slated to start this Summer, but Fox has now halted production on the project until Bale is fully healed as the role requires plenty of action.
