Bale is a 'Fighter,' 'Da Vinci' gets a threequel and more ...

Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg are getting in the ring for the boxing flick 'Fighter.' Bale takes over a role that previously had both Matt Damon and Brad Pitt attached, playing the half-brother and trainer of real-life boxer "Irish" Mickey Ward (Wahlberg). With notoriously strong-willed director David O. Russell on tap to direct, there could be fireworks both on and off the screen for this one.

In other news, Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code' follow-up 'The Lost Symbol' heads for the big screen, the adaptation of the 'Twilight' saga finale 'Breaking Dawn' may or may not be in the works, and comedian Demetri Martin plays 'Moneyball' with Brad Pitt.
