From the writer/director of Crazy Heart comes the new crime thriller, Out of the Furnace.  The story centers on one Russell Baze, who goes in search of his missing brother Rodney when the young man disappears and law enforcement fails to follow up.  Sam Shepard (Black Hawk Down) stars as the boys' uncle "Red". During a set visit, Shepard talked to our visiting group of journalists about who he shared scenes with, his character's backstory, how the quality of the script made him take the role, staying authentic to Pittsburgh's language and culture, and using improv on set.  Also starring Christian Bale, Zoe Saldana, Casey Affleck, Willem Dafoe, Forest Whitaker and Woody Harrelson, Scott Cooper's Out of the Furnace opens December 6th.  Hit the jump for the interview. Are you shooting today? Sam Shepard: Yep. I have shot already. Were you in the scene with Willem and Casey that we saw? »
