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. »

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.

Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter at the Academy Awards Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter on the Oscars' Red Carpet Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter sported matching hairdos upon their arrival at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

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 »

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.

Production was set to start this summer but given the severity of Bale’s injury (sources say he tore his Acl, which requires a couple months to fully recover from), Fox is halting production until its star is healthy.
The delay also involved director James Mangold’s commitment to the next installment in Fox’s “Wolverine” franchise starring Hugh Jackman, which he was expected to shoot following “The Deep Blue Good-by.” Mangold will now focus on shooting “Wolverine 3″ with the intent of returning to the Travis McGee movie after wrapping Marvel’s superhero sequel.

Fox has put Deep Blue Goodbye, its adaptation of the John D. MacDonald mystery-adventure book series that was to have starred Christian Bale, in dry dock. Bale, who was to have starred in the project as a freewheeling ex-soldier living on a house boat and acting as a self-proclaimed "salvage consultant,” tore his Acl just before his shoot for Paramount’s financial drama The Big Short. But the knee ligament injury will prevent him from filming Goodbye, which was to have been a far more physically intensive shoot. The climax, for example, was an intense action sequence

So far actor-turned-filmmaker Scott Cooper has directed Jeff Bridges to his first Oscar (2009's "Crazy Heart") and arguably shepherded Christian Bale to his finest performance to date (2013's "Out of the Furnace"). With the upcoming "Black Mass," depicting the life and times of Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger, it looks like he's dragged Johnny Depp from the funk of franchise dreck to what could be one of the most towering performances of the actor's career. At least, that's the vibe I'm getting from a tightly assembled trailer for the film, which uses just one scene to showcase the vibe and presence Depp is putting out there as Bulger. As soon as the frame opens on those blue contacts…wow. I'm pretty excited for the look of this thing, too, as cinematographer Masanobu Takayanagi killed it on "Furnace" and is one of the best in the game right now. This one »

The book tells the remarkable true story of the genius contrarian investors who, recognizing just how insane the housing bubble had become, figured out how to “short” the market prior to the financial collapse of 2008.

Adam Mckay, best known for his outrageous comedy sensibilities, may be gearing up to deliver a heavyweight drama for Paramount. The Big Short is based on a book by Michael Lewis and tells the story of a group of genius investors who figured out the property bubble was about to self implode and figured out a way to short the market prior to its collapse in 2008. If all of that sounds like it might not translate to screen, bear in mind Lewis' previous books Moneyball and The Blind Side managed to do quite well for themselves after being adapted for the big screen. Joining Adam McKay on the project is the kind of A-List cast the immediately screams Oscar glory come awards season. Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell and Marisa Tomei will be joining Melissa Leo for the film. Production is reportedly already underway in New Orleans. »

The penultimate episode of Daredevil's exemplary first season leaves us with more questions and corpses. Here are James' viewing notes...
With the whole series of Daredevil now available on Netflix, the race is on to reach the ending before someone spoils it for you. But that presents us with a problem. How do we approach reviews? It's not much use speculating about the future of the series when it's available at a moment's notice, but watching the whole thing in one go for a single review is impractical for anyone with a day job and personal relationships to maintain – to say nothing of how difficult it is to critically appraise 12 hours of television if you don't savour the instalments properly.
That's why, instead of traditional reviews, we're trying something new. An episode-by-episode unpicking of the show, looking at its techniques, characters and use of the source material. Call them annotations, »

McKay based the script for “The Big Short” on another script by Charles Randolph (“Love and Other Drugs”) [ Read More ]
