Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl,” “Jack Reacher”) is set to star alongside Christian Bale in the Scott Cooper-directed epic “Hostiles” at Waypoint Entertainment.
Based on a nearly 30-year-old screenplay by Oscar-winner scribe Donald Stewart, the 1892-set story follows a legendary Army captain who agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back to tribal lands.
Pike will play a widow who undertakes the perilous journey after the murder of her family on the plains. Cooper (“Black Mass,” “Out Of The Furnace”) is writing, directing and will produce with John Lesher and Ken Kao. Filming will begin in July.
