A little over ten years after Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale risked late 1970s hairdo and clothes in support of David O. Russell’s goal, the two will reconvene. The two stars are in negotiations to work together once more on Charles Roven’s “Best of Enemies” for Atlas Entertainment. Alas, their is a connected fact that Roven financed “American Hustle.”
The screenplay will be written by “American Hustle” author Eric Warren Singer. It is a rewrite of Eric Dezenhall and Gus Russo’s “Best of Enemies: The Last Great Spy Story of the Cold War.” The sizzling project is attracting interest from diverse studios and distributors, which should lead to one of those classic bidding disputes that make Hollywood exceptionally ecstatic. For the sake of Atlas, the movie’s production crew will include Madison Weireter and Ryan Sanak.
Currently enjoying a hectic awards season, Cooper produced, co-wrote, directed, and starred in the highly anticipated movie “Maestro,” which explores the life and career of Leonard Bernstein and his relationship to Felicia Montealegre. A Star is Born and The Hangover are among his other accomplishments. Bale won an Oscar for his performance in “The Fighter.” He appeared in episodes of “The Big Short,” “Vice,” and “The Dark Knight,” among others. Bale most recently starred in “Thor: Love and Thunder” and “The Pale Blue Eye” on Netflix. Along with John Woo, Roven produced “Oppenheimer,” another Oscar candidate. They are currently producing another version of “The Killer.” Amid “Best of Enemies,” two agents from the CIA and KGB form a friendship in the final stages of the Cold War and attempt to persuade one another to deceive their nation. The project’s existence and Cooper and Bale’s participation were first reported by The Insneider.
