A project involving Christian Bale and Leonardo DiCaprio sounds almost too good to be true. And in a way, it is.
According to Variety, Bale is currently in the final stages of signing on to work with DiCaprio in the film adaptation of Travis McGee’s The Deep Blue Goodbye. DiCaprio was initially expected to star in the movie (backwhen we first heard about it in 2010), but now he’s on the team of producers (with Appian Way) while Bale is in talks to take the lead role.
This movie has been a long time coming, but it sounds like it’s finally headed for production. And while it’s a bit disappointing that we won’t get to see the two great stars on screen together, their names on the project—along with director James Mangold (Walk The Line, The Wolverine, and Girl, Interrupted)—give us high hopes.
