Adam McKay Finds His Dick Cheney In Christian Bale

6 April 2017 3:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Academy Award winner Christian Bale might not be the first name that springs to mind when thinking of former Vice President Dick Cheney – but this is the performer reportedly now on board for the lead role in Adam McKay’s planned film about the controversial figure. While the project currently remains untitled, the movie will also feature Academy Award nominees Amy Adams and Steve Carell.

The film continues a move into more socially relevant work by filmmaker Adam McKay – also an Academy Award winner – after the success of 2016’s The Big Short. This Dick Cheney movie will see McKay bring the producers of The Big Short back together – as his Gary Sanchez producing company reunites with Plan B’s team – including Brad Pitt. The project also will cast Steve Carell as former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney – wife of Dick.

Now that casting choices have been announced, »
