3:10 To Yuma director James Mangold is not only in talks to take on the next solo Wolverine movie but has his sights set on the first movie in the mystery series featuring sleuth Travis McGee. The Deep Blue Good-By will tell the story of McGee as he spends his time taking on “salvage consultant” jobs and generally getting in to all kids of misadventures.
Christian Bale is already set to star as McGee and now it appears Gone Girl star, Rosamund Pike has been casted alongside him. Sony has hired the brilliant actress after she bagged the ‘Best Actress’ nomination at the Oscar Awards. While Pike didn’t take home the coveted award, her shocking performance did solidify her as one of Britain’s greatest talents. While I’m completely inexperienced with the 21 books for Travis McGee’s adventures, I am pretty excited to see Bale and Pike together!
