Western film Hostiles is in negotiations with Rosamund Pike for a role which would see her appear alongside Christian Bale.
In Hostiles, Army captain (Bale) agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief and his family back to tribal lands. Making the harrowing and perilous journey from an isolated Army outpost in New Mexico to the grasslands of Montana, the former rivals encounter a young widow (Pike) whose family was murdered on the plains. Together, they must join forces to overcome the punishing landscape and hostile Comanche tribes that they encounter along the way.
Scott Cooper is directing the film.
