Bale Joins Wahlberg On “Prisoners”?

Christian Bale (“The Dark Knight”) will join Mark Wahlberg in the thriller “Prisoners” which Bryan Singer may potentially direct according to The Risky Biz Blog.

Aaron Guzikowski’s script follows a small-town carpenter who butts heads with a young, brash detective in charge of the investigation of his missing six-year-old daughter and her friend.

The father is a Bible-reading, deer-hunting survivalist. The cop, meanwhile, can’t wait to get to the city. Feeling failed by the law, the father captures the man he believes responsible and begins to torture him in a desperate attempt to find out what he did with the girls, whom he’s convinced are still alive.

At present, the project isn’t financed and saying the Wahlberg-Bale combo is “fragile”.
