Christian Bale Weighing Options w/Spike Lee in “Old Boy” and Beyonce in “A Star is Born”

Christian Bale Weighing Options w/Spike Lee in "Old Boy" and Beyonce in "A Star is Born"

Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy and the Clint Eastwood-directed remake of A Star is Born starring Beyonce Knowles are among a handful of high-profile pictures of which Christian Bale may have his pick.

Variety reports that several studios are courting Bale to star in the films once production wraps on Batman flick The Dark Knight Rises in November.

While Bale isn’t yet attached to either of the projects, both are part of a group of films under his consideration, which also includes Darren Aronofsky’s Biblical epic Noah; Gold, with Michael Mann to direct; and Out of the Furnace, with Scott Cooper to direct.

Bale has been known for his versatility, starring in franchise projects (Batman, Terminator) as well as smaller, more award-worthy films (The Fighter), and he’s said to be making his decision based on the material and the people involved.
