It seems that the writer of the upcoming horror film The Hole has a few more projects in the works, one of which could have an A-list star attached. Bloody-Disgusting recently interviewed screenwriter Mark L. Smith who said he's writing a new film entitled The Revenant. Here's an excerpt from the site's article.

"The Revenant, which is a period action/revenge piece that Anonymous Content is producing," he tells BD exclusively adding some huge news. "John Hillcoat (The Road) is attached to direct, and Christian Bale is in talks to star."

Smith also told the site that he is writing a remake of the Pascal Laugier film Martyrs for producer Wyck Godfrey and he also revealed some details on a secret project he's working on with Underworld 3: The Rise of The Lycans director Patrick Tatopoulos.

"There's also an fantastic project I'm working on with Patrick Tatopoulos (Underworld 3, I, Frankenstein, The Colony). He'd kill me if I told anyone what it was about... it was Patrick's idea/vision, and I was just lucky enough that he asked me to do it with him. He's amazing."
