Christian Bale is headed to Filmax Intl. drama “Concrete Island.” Brad Anderson is attached to direct.

Barcelona-based Filmax is producing and financing, with Antonia Nava and Carlos Fernandez as producers.

Scott Kosar is adapting J.G. Ballard’s 1974 novel centering on a wealthy architect who finds himself stranded in a section of fenced-off wasteland in West London; he’s forced to survive on only what’s in his crashed car and what he’s able to find. He finds companions on the island and decides to remain there and forsake his former life.

Project reunites Bale, Anderson and Kosar seven years after they teamed on “The Machinist.” Filmax was a producer on “The Machinist,” during which Kosar brought “Concrete Island” to the attention of Bale and Anderson.

No start date’s been set for “Concrete Island.”

Bale is set to go into production shortly as Batman in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Anderson’s credits include “Transsiberian” and the upcoming “Vanishing on Seventh Street.” He revealed that he’s attached to “Concrete Island” in interviews with the We Got This Covered and Shock Til You Drop websites. Kosar’s credits include “The Crazies” and “The Amityville Horror.”

Bale and Anderson are repped by WME and Kosar is repped by Verve and Gotham Group. Filmax is repped by Gotham Group, the Ballard estate by Jenne Cassarotto.
