Director David O. Russell took a little hiatus after “Joy,” but now he’s back – and the stars have been lining up. Now there are details and the first picture of his film “Amsterdam”, which will soon be released in cinemas.
At the cinema fair Cinema-Con, Disney subsidiary 20th Century Studios announced that David O. Russell’s latest film is entitled “Amsterdam” and an “an original, romantic crime epic about three close friends who find themselves at the center of one of the most shocking covert ventures in American history.”
There is also a first picture of the three friends in the center, which also hints at what kind of star cast Russell is working with here again. The picture shows Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and “Tenet” star John David Washington.
As you know from Russell, you definitely have to take a second look to recognize all the stars straight away. Margot Robbie is not blonde here again, Washington is significantly less muscular than in “Tenet” and that is especially true for Christian Bale. The already physically transforming actor for almost every role (see our article picture from “American Hustle” – also a collaboration with Russell) is again very, very thin here.
The first fan voices on the net repeatedly express an association: Bale is very reminiscent of Matthew McConaughey’s Rust Cohle from the series “True Detective”.
In addition to the trio, we also see Robert De Niro, Alessandro Nivola, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rami Malek, Taylor Swift, Mike Myers, Chris Rock, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Zoe Saldana, Andrea Riseborough, and Matthias Schoenaerts in “Amsterdam”.
