Christian Bale joins Scott Cooper’s next film

Christian Bale currently has a number of projects in pre-production that he is attached to that will follow up the third instalment in the Chris Nolan Batman franchise due for release in just a few months. Following ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, we’ll see Bale in two films for 2013 including ‘Lawless’ and ‘Knight of Cups’ with a new film now added to his slate being ‘Out of the Furnace’ scheduled for release in 2014.

The film comes from director Scott Cooper who’s 2009 film ‘Crazy Heart’ starred Jeff Bridges and won him his first academy award for best performance by an actor in a leading role. Cooper has been rumoured to be attached to a number of projects since the release of ‘Crazy Heart’, though now things are looking firm for ‘Out of the Furnace’ particularly with the casting of the lead actor.

Interestingly ‘Out of the Furnace’ is reportedly the number five black script from 2008, where it was titled ‘The Low Dweller’. ‘Out of the Furnace’ follows a recently released prisoner whom is drawn into a quest for revenge. It is also rumoured that Viggo Mortensen, Casey Affleck and Garrett Hedlund are being sought to cast in the film.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
