Actor Christian Bale has a soft spot for certain directors, resulting in the actor doing multiple movies for the likes of Adam McKay, David O. Russell, Scott Cooper and Christopher Nolan.
Cooper has worked with Bale twice before on “Out of the Furnace” and “Hostiles,” and recently, the pair reunited for the upcoming gothic mystery thriller “The Pale Blue Eye”.
With the making of the film behind them, the pair aren’t intending to separate any time soon. Speaking with The Playlist, Cooper was asked about his relationship with Christian Bale and if they plan on making more films together.
The pair have been rumored in recent months to be making a mystery film titled “Valhalla” and Cooper confirms they intend to get around to that along with other projects together:
“Yes, he [Bale] and I will eventually make ‘Valhalla’. I’ve also long wanted to reimagine Laurent Cantet’s 2001 French film ‘L’Emploi du temps,’ which translates to ‘Time Out,’ which is about an unemployed man who finds his life sinking more and more into trouble as he hides his situation from his family and friends.
So, at some point, hopefully, you’ll get a fourth film from Christian and myself. Both of us, certainly, like stories that say something deep-rooted about American life and its relationship with the darker corners of the human psyche.”
Both previous outings of the duo scored an excellent critical reaction, and indications are “The Pale Blue Eye” will continue that, though no official reviews have yet been published. The film opens in select cinemas on Friday ahead of a January 6th release on Netflix.
