I am very excited to share the trailer for the new film "Out Of The Furnace" with you!
It was written and directed by Scott Cooper! Yeah...you know the one I'm talking about...he wrote, directed and porduced "Crazy Heart" in 2009. The really cool thing about him (at least for local folks) is that he once lived here in Somerset with his family! His brother graduated with me in the Somerset High School Class of 1981...so you can imagine all of us from that class, and probably all SHS alums, are thrilled about Scott's success!
The movie is a gritty crime drama starring Christian Bale and Casey Affleck with Zoe Saldana. It also features Sam Sheperd, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe and Woody Harrelson! Can we say STELLAR CAST?
The film is basically about a brother who takes matters into his own hands after his younger brother disappears. There's a crime ring, a prison, underground street fighting, a returning Iraq veteran story, steel mills, a lost love and a brother to brother relationship...all elements that lead to an explosive conclusion.
It's Rated R for violence, language and drug content. The movie will be released to theaters on Friday, December 6th.
I'll definitely want to see this film...and most definitely want to support a 'little boy' who once called Somerset home! If you get to see it this weekend, let me know how you like it!
