We already know that “Anchorman” and “The Big Short” director Adam McKay has been working on a Dick Cheney biopic. The film already has Christian Bale locked in to play Cheney and currently undergoing one of his famed body transformations for the part.
What’s not known is who will be co-starring with him, though there’s been rumors of Amy Adams as his wife Lynne Cheney and Steve Carell as Donald Rumsfeld.
Now, That Hashtag Show reports that there are three key roles in the process of being cast with both Edward Norton and James Marsden up for President George W. Bush.
They also say Mackenzie Davis is being sought for Cheney’s daughter Mary, and the trio of Tyler Perry, Cuba Gooding, Jr., or Giancarlo Esposito are all up for former Secretary of State Colin Powell.
Filming aims to begin shortly with a potential awards push late next year.
