Bale, Affleck Go ‘Out Of The Furnace’
The next picture Christian Bale will follow up after The Dark Knight Rises has been announced. He will be playing Casey Affleck’s brother in the crime drama Out Of The Furnace.
The Wrap (via Yahoo) has this:
n the film, Affleck is lured into a dangerous crime ring after his brother (Bale) is sent to prison. The film is set in an economically depressed section of the northeastern United States and will be directed by Scott Cooper (“Crazy Heart”). Cooper also wrote the screenplay.
Also in the film will be Zoe Saldana and Sam Shepard.
Appian Way,(Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran) along with Scott Free (Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, and Michael Costigan) and Relativity’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh will be producing.
It’s a great thing to know that Bale is known for his roles outside of Batman and other genre films. It’s also a big plus when he’s co-starring with equally terrific talent. I’ll be most interested in this film, which is going to begin production later in the month.
