Woody Harrelson Eyeing Out of the Furnace

It's very sincerely beginning to look like Scott Cooper's directorial follow-up to Crazy Heart will just cast and cast and cast until all the actors are taken, then maybe film something. Now Woody Harrelson is considering joining Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, and Sam Shepard in the Christian Bale–starring revenge tale. Harrelson's role would be Curtis DeGroat, the villain who kills a newly unjailed Christian Bale's brother (Affleck). P.S.: Leonardo DiCaprio and Ridley and Tony Scott are all producers on this thing, and Forrest Whittaker, Viggo Mortensen, Billy Bob Thornton, and Robert Duvall have all been rumored as potential players. Yeah.
