Rosamund Pike Joins Christian Bale in Scott Cooper’s ‘Hostiles’

Rosamund Pike is in negotiations to co-star with Christian Bale in Scott Cooper’s “Hostiles,” sources confirmed to Variety.

Cooper will write and direct, with Bale attached to star. Cooper will also produce with “Black Mass” producer John Lesher along with Ken Kao, who is also financing the pic through Waypoint Entertainment.

Set in 1892, “Hostiles” tells the story of a legendary Army captain (Bale) who agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from an isolated Army outpost in New Mexico to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Pike) whose family was murdered on the plains. Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape and hostile Comanche tribes that they encounter along the way.

Production is set to begin in July.

Sources say Cooper was drawn to Pike after seeing her in Massive Attack’s music video “Voodoo in My Blood,” which recently caused an Internet stir.

Pike recently wrapped production on the World War II thriller “HHhH” as well as “A United Kingdom” with David Oyelowo. She is repped by CAA, United Agents and Magnolia Entertainment. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
