PHILADELPHIA (CBS Local) — Actor Christian Bale has played everything from an investment banker in “American Psycho” to a hero in “Batman Begins.” His next featured role will be starring as Dick Cheney.
The Oscar-winning actor’s transformation is said to be the most haunted to date. “Vice” is slated to hit theaters this Christmas. Oscar-winning filmmaker Adam McKay is behind this production and stated “the second I thought of doing this movie, I knew right away, the most exciting person to play him [Cheney] is Christian.”
Last year, McKay mentioned the power of Cheney’s leadership in shaping American history and bigger effect on global events.
Vanity Fair said that the movie’s story-line is crucially relevant to the current political climate and described Cheney as “an ultimate insider who knew every trick in the book.”
