Hostiles (2017, D: Scott Cooper) S: Christian Bale, Wes Studi, Rosamund Pike

Quote:
Director Scott Cooper and Christian Bale are reuniting for Western film “Hostiles.”

Cooper will write and direct with Bale attached to star. Cooper will also produce with “Black Mass” producer John Lesher producing 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, 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 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.

Following his shoot on “The Big Short,” Bale had taken the rest of 2015 off to recuperate from a knee injury. He began looking for new projects once the knee was fully rehabilitated. He had been considering the Michael Mann biopic “Ferrari,” which revolved around the life of automobile honcho Enzo Ferrari, but had to drop out due to health concerns over weight gains for the role.

Cooper had also been weighing several films but when Bale became available after parting ways with “Ferrari,” the two jumped at the chance to work together. The two also worked together on “Out of the Furnace.”

Cooper is coming off the mob movie “Black Mass,” which over-performed at the box office and also brought Cooper and his star Johnny Depp critical praise.

Bale was recently nominated for an Oscar for “The Big Short.” Cooper is repped by CAA and Bale is repped by WME.

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

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.

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.

Le Grisbi Productions and Waypoint Entertainment have released the first image from Scott Cooper’s upcoming western “Hostiles,” which is set for an international premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.

The film, set in 1892, stars Christian Bale as a legendary Army Captain who, after stern resistance, agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (Wes Studi) and his family back home to tribal lands. The perilous journey takes Bale and his detail from New Mexico to the grasslands of Montana. Along the way they pick up a young widow (Rosamund Pike), whose family has been murdered on the plains by hostile Comanche natives. Jesse Plemons, Rory Cochrane, Ben Foster, Jonathan Majors and Timothee Chalamet also star.

Cooper’s last film, “Black Mass” — starring Johnny Depp as Boston gangster Whitey Bulger — also played the Toronto film festival. He previously collaborated with Bale on the 2013 film “Out of the Furnace.”

“Hostiles” was produced by Cooper, Oscar winner John Lesher (“Birdman”) and Ken Kao (“The Glass Castle”). The cinematographer is Masanobu Takayanagi (“Spotlight”). The editor is Oscar winner Tom Cross (“Whiplash,” “La La Land”). The production was designed by Oscar winner Donald Graham Burt (“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”). Composer Max Richter (“The Leftovers”) provided the original score.

“Hostiles” is one of a number of acquisition titles heading to Toronto.

I like a good Western and I've got a huge crush on Rosamund Pike so I'll definitely check this one out.

Was that "I've killed everything that's walked or crawled..." line stolen from Unforgiven?

Saw this tonight and really liked it. A bit of a slow burn, but it picked up whenever it started to drag. Bale was great, had to display a lot more emotion than I thought his character would. A really nice film to look at as well, beautiful views for those who appreciate and enjoy nature.

Hostiles (D: Cooper) S: Bale, Pike, Studi

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt5478478/?ref_=nv_sr_5

Looked for a thread and couldn't find it.

Wasn't aware of this until I saw a tv ad last night. Looks like this could be really good. Always in for a good western.

I thought this was fantastic. Bale always manages to pull off great performances and this was no different. The rest of the cast is really good too. Really brutal and gritty western but I liked it a lot. Scott Cooper is four for four as a director in my book. The film is long but moves at a brisk pace where it never feels overly long in my opinion. Overall well worth seeing.

The movie was good but they could've cut like 20 minutes out of it.

I've heard that the pacing/editing issues take a great movie and turn it into an OK one. I hope that's not the case here. I hope that's not the case. I love me a good western and don't mind a slow burn as long as the material is compelling enough.

I think I would agree with that. There is a small subplot that just adds extra time and doesn't add that much to the movie. They could've figure out another way to incorporate it in. It is not a bad movie by any means though.

I went with my dad to watch this today. I loved it. Christian Bale and Rosamund Pike are fantastic in this. Rory Cochrane also gives a nice supporting performance too. By the way Timothée Chalamet had great luck in 2017. He was in three great movies Hostiles, Lady Bird, and Call Me By Your Name. 4.75/5

Re: Hostiles (2017, D: Scott Cooper) S: Christian Bale, Wes Studi, Rosamund Pike

Saw this tonight and thought it was very good. I did find it a bit long. Could have been trimmed by 10 or 15 minutes. Question for those that have seen it

Spoiler:
Are we to assume the women were raped when they were abducted? I didn't understand why they were tied up outside. I figured nothing happened yet but then saw they were really beat up.

I thought they were since they seemed to have been stripped down and beat up.

In that case I would be surprised at her improved mental state given the double whammy

I'm surprised she recovered at all. It helps that she had someone that cared for her save her life.

Spoiler:
The editing and/or storytelling in that part could have been much better. It seemed that the rescuers were only about ten minutes behind the trappers, which in my mind would have made it difficult for anything too nefarious to happen (or at least conclude to the point of them having been raped and tied back up).

There's a great movie here within a poorly edited merely good one. Cooper's films all have good central performances but the films meander and just lack that focus of masterworks.
