Not very long ago we shared the news that Sony had bailed on James Mangold‘s attempted remake of "3:10 to Yuma," but now we have good news times two! Not only has Mr. Mangold found some financing, but it looks like he’s found someone to co-star with Russell Crowe. And that someone looks to be Christian Bale. Excellent!
From The Hollywood Reporter: "Christian Bale is close to a deal to star opposite Russell Crowe in James Mangold’s "3:10 to Yuma." Relativity Media is stepping in to finance the film, which has been without a home since Columbia Pictures put it into turnaround earlier this summer. The move is certain to give Mangold a sigh of relief as the Western remake is taking a tortuous journey to the screen. Columbia spent four years developing the film, which it had hoped to start filming this summer."
