Christian Bale will star in and produce a new film based on the Vanity Fair article “The Church of the Living Dangerously,” written by David Kushner. The article stories John Lee Bishop, a man who overcomes obstacles to become the pastor of a large church, known for parading exotic animals during sermons and ultimately becoming a drug smuggler for a Mexican cartel. That’s not even half of the story. New Agency recently acquired the rights and Oscar-winner Charles Randolph will pen the script. Deadline first broke the story.
