Bale, Singer, and Wahlberg signed on to 'Prisoners'

Looks like Singer is reverting back to his roots, and directing a thriller titled 'Prisoners'. Interestingly enough, both Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale are on board to star in the film.

Here's a synopsis of the plot:

"After his 6-year-old daughter and her friend are kidnapped, a small-town carpenter butts heads with a young, brash detective in charge of the investigation. The father is a Bible-reading, deer-hunting survivalist. The cop, meanwhile, can’t wait to get to the city. Feeling failed by the law, the father captures the man he believes responsible and begins to torture him in a desperate attempt to find out what he did with the girls, whom he’s convinced are still alive."


  1. I really hope Wahlberg is the father and Bale the investigator... I feel like Wahlberg playing another policeman is too easy.

  2. i agree. i'd like to see marky mark as the father.

  3. I would rather see Bale as the carpenter, but either way works. I'm just not as convinced about Wahlberg range as an actor. If he were to play the carpeter, it might just be like watching two detectives together.
