Affleck and Bale for "Out of the Furnace"
Affleck and Bale for "Out of the Furnace"

Principal photography is starting on "Crazy Heart" writer-director Scott Cooper's thriller "Out of the Furnace." Christian Bale and Casey Affleck play two brothers living in the economically depressed Rust Belt who find themselves lured into a violent crime ring. Woody Harrelson is a brutal crime boss; Forest Whitaker plays the Sheriff of Braddock; Zoe Saldana is Bale’s love interest and Shepard plays the uncle of the two brothers.

Cooper, whose debut "Crazy Heart" earned Jeff Bridges his Oscar in 2010, will film in Braddock and Rankin, Pennsylvania. The plot is similar to Nicolas Winding Refn's "Drive" follow-up, "Only God Forgives" (with Ryan Gosling).

Relativity will handle the US release while Red Granite will handle foreign distribution--and will sell the film next month at Cannes. Also producing with Relativity's Ryan Kavanaugh are Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran and Scott Free's Ridley Scott, Tony Scott and Michael Costigan.

    As a filmmaker you should know what NOBODY is telling you, that.....there was a lawsuit against Sundance, ( fraud and theft of submission fees) They don't watch the films, ( 12,000 films , 6 head programmers) the judge ruled they don't have to. That indiewire and Filmmaker magazine refuse to report this news, because they receive money from Sundance.
    That 7000 film festivals in the U.S. are operating fraudulent business's that are all connected to "without a box" which LEGALLY steals all filmmakers rights, once you have submitted to these film festivals.
    Filmmakers films are selling on Amazon, which they never legally allowed them to sell.
    If you believe in Sundance and that they are in fact interested in "discovering indy films" you had better awaken out of your bubble. Kevin Smiths film is already chosen for Sundance 2013, as are many other films, they have already been chosen. Sundance doesn't watch the films, they steal filmmakers money AND they award their own films! Another Earth, and Beasts of the Southern Wild, are both Sundance films, that won awards AND money!
