Christian Bale is locked down to play the Van Heflin role in James Mangold‘s 3:10 to Yuma. That’s the less charismatic role, as if you had to be told. Russell Crowe has the cool-bad-guy Glenn Ford role, or the one that Tom Cruise was going to play before he bailed over…I don’t why he bailed. (Does anyone?) Columbia Pictures bailed on this oater a while back, but now Relativity Media is going to cover production costs.
