Casey Affleck jumping in…er, Out of the Furnace?

1 min read

We recently brought news that fresh from dressing up like a giant flying rodent and verbally abusing DP’s, Christian “Please pass the Strepsils” Bale was going to be taking up the lead role in Scott Cooper’s revenge film, Out Of The Furnace.

There were rumours making the rounds that Viggo “Fighting naked is the best” Morgensen would be joining Bale, but those have now been quashed, with a newly surfaced report from Variety indicating that Casey “I talk like I just came from the dentist” Affleck is actually the front runner for the supporting role.

According to the report “Bale plays a guy who’s released from prison and wants only to get his life back and marry his gal. All that changes when his brother is murdered, and the mission becomes revenge.” Affleck would be up for the role of the unlucky brother.

There has have also been reports that Zoe Saldana and Robert Duvall would be co-starring, which gives this film a truly killer cast. Combined with Scott Cooper’s directorial abilities, as displayed in 2009’s Oscar winning Crazy Heart, this makes for a highly anticipated film.

  1. Dude, you seriously need to read through the articles you want to post before posting them.

    On what planet does this make sense? “We recently news brought that fresh from dressing up like a giant flying rodent and verbally abusing DP’s”

    And I think you were supposed to be talking about Viggo Mortensen as opposed to “Vitto “Fighting naked is the best” Morgensen”

    Just get someone to proof-read the articles before posting and the problem will be solved.

    PS – please delete this post after reading it as it’s only meant for the article’s author

      The Viggo/Vitto thing was a simple typo, those dastardly G and T keys are just gosh darn close together! 

      As for the swapping news/brought together….  Er, I got nothing. Somehow, that was honestly just missed, despite me generally reading through my articles 4 or 5 time before I post it.

      So thanks for bringing it to my attention.
