Christian Bale to star in ‘Out of the Furnace’

Jul 23, 2012

Los Angeles: Batman Begins star Christian Bale is in talks to star in revenge drama Out of the Furnace.

The film which was previously titled The Low Dweller will be directed by Crazy Heart helmer Scott Cooper, the Hollywood Reporter said.


The film centers on a man released after serving four years in prison. His hopes for a peaceful homecoming are thwarted when his younger brother is brutally murdered and he sets out for revenge.

The project almost came together with Bale and director Rupert Sanders last year, but Bale dropped out because of scheduling reasons.

Actor Robert Duvall, who appeared in Cooper's Crazy Heart, is also set to join the film, though no deals have been made.
