Relativity Media has firmed up casting for Out Of The Furnace with Sam Shepard joining Christian Bale, Casey Affleck and Zoe Saldana as the production directed by Scott Cooper gets under way later this month. Cooper also wrote the script based on an initial version by Brad Inglesby titled The Low Dwellers.

Saldana is Bale’s love interest while Shepard will play Bale’s and Affleck’s uncle. Relativity will distribute in the U.S. LA-based production-financing-sales company Red Granite will handle international sales next month in Cannes.
