Christian Bale is negotiating to star in Todd Field’s third film

Todd Field has only made two movies to date, but they’ve both been so good that already he’s looked at somewhat as a master of the craft. He’s easily two for two with ‘In The Bedroom’ and ‘Little Children’, and he’s looking to go even darker with his third film. He’s planning another adaptation, this time the novel ‘Creed of Violence’, and Variety is reporting here that he’s talking heavily with Christian Bale for the lead role, which is a pretty ideal teaming in my eyes. After the jump you can see what the film is going to be about, but for me, anything Field and/or Bale (though more so Field than Bale, honestly) get involved with has my undivided attention. Read on for more…

Here’s what the article says the movie will be about:

…depicts the 1910 Mexican revolution via the gun sights of an unlikely duo: small-time assassin Rawbone and John Lourdes, a young Bureau of Investigation agent. The two are forced to work together to infiltrate the Mexican criminal underground, encountering thieves, smugglers and professional killers. Bale is in the early stages of negotiating a deal to play Rawbone.
