The Dark Knight is seeking revenge in a new movie! THR reports that Christian Bale is in talks to star in Out of the Furnace, which is being directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) for Relativity.
The project was once known as The Low Dweller and is based on a spec script by Brad Ingelsby. It centers on "a man released after serving four years in prison. His hopes for a peaceful homecoming are thwarted when he sets out to find the man who brutally murdered his younger brother to avenge his death."
Bale was close to a deal to star in the film with Sanders in the director's chair but had to drop out due to scheduling reasons. Robert Duvall, who appeared in Cooper’s Crazy Heart, is thought to be starring as well, although no deals have been made. Bale will likely film this in the spring, before doing press for The Dark Knight Rises and shooting Terrence Malick's drama Knight of Cups.
