'Crazy Heart's' Scott Cooper To Write And Direct Southern Vengeance Tale 'Out Of The Furnace'
The story follows a man recently released from prison for murder who wants to lead a good life and marry his longtime girlfriend. Then, some jerk gamblers go off and kill his brother so he has to put his murdering pants back on to exact revenge. The script is said to have a No Country For Old Men vibe, but it sounds more like Con-Air to me. Hey Scott Cooper. Since you're rewriting this story anyway, would you mind turning it into the Con-Air sequel? The world needs this. (Deadline)
