Despite having two films out this summer, Terminator Salvation and Public Enemies, Bale hasn't actually filmed any scenes in almost a year.
Now, Bale is preparing to return to production next month with The Fighter, which co-stars Mark Wahlberg. The film tells the real life story of “Irish” Micky Ward (Wahlberg) as he enters the world of light welterweight with training from his brother, Dickie Eklund (Bale).
According to Bale he's "had to loose a great deal of weight because he was a welterweight." Hopefully all that starving doesn't make Bale grump and snap at anyone on set. Too soon?
