The project will be David O. Russell's first since 2015's "Joy" and one can only hope that all that time was spent crafting something spectacular that's sure to utilize the skillset of his two leads to the fullest.
David famously directed Christian in his Oscar-winning role in the Fighter, which also earned supporting actress Melissa Leo a golden statuette in 2011. Bale has been on quite the run in recent years, as three of the last six films he has starred in - The Big Short, Vice, and Ford v. Ferrari - have been nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars.
She was most recently seen in "Birds of Prey" reprising her role of Harley Quinn, and also recently finished production on "The Suicide Squad", also playing Quinn.
New Regency's producing credits include Oscar best picture victor "Birdman", "The Revenant", "Little Women", "The Lighthouse", "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Ad Astra", "Widows", "Assassin's Creed" and "The Girl in the Spider's Web". Additionally, no other actors are rumored to be attached to the project at the time of this writing.
