Sam Rockwell (Moon; Iron Man 2; Seven Psychopaths) has joined the cast of Annapurna’s upcoming Dick Cheney biopic Cheney, from The Big Short director Adam McKay.
The movie, which will chronicle the life of Cheney with a critical eye, will star Christian Bale as the notorious former US vice-president who worked under President George W. Bush between 2001 and 2009. Rockwell will portray Bush at the head of a cast that will also include Amy Adams as Cheney’s wife Lynne and Steve Carell as former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Bill Pullman will also star.
The movie was announced back in November 2016, and will be produced by McKay, Will Ferrell and Kevin Messick of Gary Sanchez Productions, as well as Brad Pitt and Dede Gardner of Plan B Entertainment.
There is currently no release date for this film, though production is expected to start in September.
