Christian Bale will apparently re-team with his “The Machinist” director on “Concrete Island” reports We Got This Covered.
Based on the novel by J.G. Ballard (“Empire of the Sun”), the story follows an architect who finds himself stranded on a man made island in the middle of a highway intersection after a car crash. Surviving only on what is in his car, his mind begins to deteriorate before realizing that he wants to spend the rest of his life on his concrete island.
“The Machinist” scribe Scott Kosar has adapted the script. Bale will likely drop weight again for the role like he has for “The Machinist,” “Rescue Dawn” and “The Fighter”.
