Christian Bale takes The Last Photograph?

Could sign up to new Zack Snyder film

Christian Bale

Christian Bale has been linked to a new drama entitled The Last Photograph.

Based on an idea by Watchmen director Zack Snyder, the script has been scribbled by Kurt Johnstad (who co-wrote 300 with Snyder), while Niels Arden Oplev is in talks to direct. Oplev is best known for directing the Swedish thriller The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

According to Pajiba, the drama “revolves around a photograph that becomes the catalyst for a journey two men undertake through war-torn Afghanistan”.

Not much to go on, but it’ll at least give Bale a break from the superhero roles, having spent much of his time dedicated to Batman or John Connor in the past few years.

Bale’s next project is The Fighter, which hits screens in December and follows boxer Micky Ward. He’s also expected to sign on for Batman 3 once that officially goes into production.
