Christian Bale will star in the drama "Concrete Island," based on J.G. Ballard's 1974 novel.
According to Variety, Brad Anderson ("Transsiberian" and the upcoming "Vanishing on Seventh Street") is attached to direct.
Scott Kosar is adapting the script which centers on a wealthy architect who finds himself stranded in a section of fenced-off wasteland in West London. All he has to survive on is what he can find in his crashed car. He eventually finds companions on the island and decides to stay and renounce his former life.
Bale, Anderson and Kosar collaborated on "The Machinist" in 2004.
Barcelona-based Filmax International's Antonio Nava and Carlos Fernandez are producing.
Bale is about to reprise his role as Batman in Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises."
