Christian Bale! You get Out Of The Furnace!

Christian Bale is in talks to star in GET OUT OF THE FURNACE. How he got in the furnace, we'll never know.

The film's said to be a throwback to the 1970s revenge flicks, a story of a man who serves four years in prison before returning home hoping to live a peaceful like. There's just one thing- he's got to find the man who brutally murdered his younger brother and deal with him, like you do. Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART) will direct the mayhem.

The spec script for GET OUT OF THE FURNACE has been around since 2008 and a bunch of actors and directors have shown interest in it over the years, including Ridley Scott and Mark Wahlberg. Just last year the project almost came together with Bale starring and Rupert Sanders (SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN) directing, but Bale had to drop out due to scheduling issues.

Robert Duvall is reportedly being considered for a part, although no deals have been made. If all goes well they'll shoot the film in the spring before Bale starts shooting Terrance Malick's KNIGHT OF CUPS and starts doing press for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.

It's been a while

since we got some Bale news, and this sounds pretty cool, even if it's just a rumor. It seems like a much better project than the Oldboy remake, which will most definitely not be on par with the original. Here he might go a little more crazy, or go badass again, both of which are welcome approaches.

Right guy...right project...sidenote: i feel like doing press tour for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES could potentially kill a mortal man...that's gonna be a rough ride, fun, but rough... and I wouldn't be surprised if Bale weighs 102 pounds just bc he completes the rigors of the tour.

This had a great script. I read it a while back when it was called "The Lowdweller". Really solid, suspenseful stuff. The cast and crew are really shaping up as well. I'll keep my eye on this one.

Cool. I hope Bale gets to go a bit crazy in this role, along the lines of American Psycho and Harsh Times.

Sweet.

Christian Bale in a revenge flick sounds awesome. This could be a really cool movie, especically if there's a scene where recites the Terminator rant. Love that guy.
