Bale circling political drama.

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ star Christian Bale has reportedly been offered the lead in writer/director Todd Haynes’ upcoming political drama ‘Act of God.’

If Bale puts pen to paper and commits to the project, he will play “Ron Madariaga, a Kansas man who speaks out against local government after a devastating tornado, becoming a national figure in the process.”

The film would mark Bale’s third collaboration with Haynes, having previously worked together on ‘I’m Not There’ and ‘Velvet Goldmine.’ Christine Vachon of Killer Films is on board to produce.

Bale will next be seen starring alongside Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson, and Casey Affleck in the Scott Cooper-directed revenge thriller ‘Out Of The Furnace,’ hitting Irish cinemas in November.
