Willem Dafoe joins Christian Bale and Casey Affleck in Out of the Furnace
Never fear, Willem Dafoe is here.
The actor is joining the already stellar cast of OUT OF THE FURNACE. Dafoe jumps on board with Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard, Woody Harrelson and Forest Whitaker.
Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART) has begun filming already on the project which is about, "fate, circumstance and justice. Russell (Bale) and his younger brother Rodney (Affleck) live in the economically depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of escaping and finding better lives. But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother is lured into one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast – a mistake that will almost cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother."
Dafoe being in this only makes it sound that much better.
