Christian Bale is currently working on his third outing as Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman, in The Dark Knight Rises, and has a hefty decision to make once he's finished shooting.
Variety reports that Bale has five upcoming projects to chose from once The Dark Knight Rises wraps in November, including Warner Bros.' remake of A Star Is Born, which has Clint Eastwood at the helm, and Beyonce Knowles as the female lead. The story, about an alcoholic star on his way down who falls for a younger, female artist on the way up, has been made three times already, the first as a drama in 1937, and later as a musical in 1954 and, most recently (and infamously), in 1976. It would seem that Eastwood would be trying again for a musical version, hence Beyonce's involvement, and it would be Bale's first musical since 1993's Newsies, which reportedly Bale is not a fan of. "Time healed those wounds," Bale told EW in 2007. "But it took a while." We'll count A Star Is Born as a maybe then. what are the other roles? >>
