Christian Bale is starring in a new period horror movie at Netflix titled The Pale Blue Eye and today we have some pictures to share that give us a first look at the film thanks to Variety.
Bale plays a detective in the story that is “investigating a series of murders at an 1830 military academy, helped by a young man later known as Edgar Allan Poe.” I love that Poe is a part of this story and he will be played by Harry Potter and The Queens Gambit actor Harry Melling, which is excellent casting! He’s a good actor!
The Pale Blue Eye is directed by Scott Cooper (Hostiles, Out of the Furnace, Antlers) and it also has an all-star cast that includes Gillian Anderson, Lucy Boynton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Toby Jones, Harry Lawtey, Simon McBurney, Timothy Spall, Hadley Robinson, Joey Brooks, Brennan Cook, Gideon Glick, Fred Hechinger, Matt Helm, Steven Maier, Charlie Tahan, and Robert Duvall.
This movie will mark the third partnership between Cooper and Bale, who also made Out of the Furnace and Hostiles together.
The Pale Blue Eye will release in select theaters on December 23, 2022, while the movie will start streaming on Netflix on January 6, 2023.
