OUT OF THE FURNACE is an upcoming thriller film directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart), and starring Christian Bale, Forest Whitaker, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck and Zoe Saldana. Written by Cooper and Brad Ingelsby, the film tells the story of two brothers living in a mill town in the economically depressed Rust Belt.
Russell Baze (Bale) has a rough life: he works a dead-end blue collar job at the local steel mill by day, and cares for his terminally ill father by night. When Russell’s brother Rodney (Affleck) returns home from serving time in Iraq, he gets lured into one of the most ruthless crime rings in the Northeast and mysteriously disappears. The police fail to crack the case, so Russell takes matters into his own hands, putting his life on the line to seek justice for his brother.
