LONDON – During an interview for Esquire magazine, Christian Bale accidentally revealed that he is in talks to play an undisclosed role in V for Vendetta 2.
Bale was asked if he had ever considered starring in a comic-book movie and he gave this stunning response:
Well I really like those Marvel films, it’s big entertainment but for an actor, you have to be willing to commit yourself for a long time and at the moment, I’m not ready to do that. Though if it was a one off, like this sequel to V for Vendetta that I might get involved in, then that’s different. I don’t have to clear my diary for the next five years.
The interviewer tried to press Bale for more details but the actor wouldn’t play ball:
I can’t say anything, mate. I probably shouldn’t have even mentioned that the project exists as only a few people have seen the script. I expect a stern email full of harsh expletives from Chris Nolan as soon as this goes to press.
Asked how Christopher Nolan was involved in the movie, Bale played dumb:
Chris who? Never heard of him.
Since Bale’s revelation The Studio Exec attempted to contact Christopher Nolan but he was unavailable for comment. However his spokesman issued this statement:
Christopher is not involved in a sequel to V for Vendetta. However, if he was involved he would be extremely angry with Christian Bale and he’d currently be writing him a stern email full of harsh expletives.
V for Vendetta 2 will be released in 2016.
