This is just speculation on my part, but based on a little Herald blurb, we might see Christian Bale coming to Boston to film a movie called "The Prisoners" along with Mark Wahlberg.

That the word in Hollywood is that “Batman” biggie Christian Bale is this close to joining Mark Wahlberg in “The Prisoners,” the flick-in-development written by Brockton homey Aaron Guzikowski . As we told you yesterday, the script is about a Boston father who goes all vigilante when his daughter is kidnapped.

First off, script written by someone in Brockton. That's a good sign. Then secondly, the script is about a "Boston father." I'm hoping that means the movie takes place in Boston for at least part of the movie - if not all of it.

Ok, I did some digging, here's an excerpt from a Hollywood blog that has more about the script:

Here's the basic idea: After his 6-year-old daughter and her friend are kidnapped, a small-town carpenter butts heads with a young, brash detective in charge of the investigation. The father is a Bible-reading, deer-hunting survivalist. The cop, meanwhile, can’t wait to get to the city. Feeling failed by the law, the father captures the man he believes responsible and begins to torture him in a desperate attempt to find out what he did with the girls, whom he’s convinced are still alive.
