Mark L. Smith who is the writer for the 2007 film ‘Vacancy’ has confirmed he is writing the script for ‘The Revenant’ and that negotiations are currently underway to cast Christian Bale who has shown interest in the film.

Christian Bale has an impressive filmography to his name including ‘The Prestige’, ‘Rescue Dawn’, ‘The Machinist’ and of course the current Batman franchise. Bale is highly dedicated to the art of acting and has regularly displayed extreme levels of commitment to the roles he has been cast in the past, particularly his role in ‘The Machinist’.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
