Now playing in theaters is writer/director Scott Cooper’s (Crazy Heart) drama Out of the Furnace.  Shot entirely on location in and around Braddock, Pennsylvania, the film stars Christian Bale as an ex-con steel worker who seeks vengeance when his brother (Casey Affleck) disappears after getting involved with a local crime ring.  Out of the Furnace also stars Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Sam Shepard, Willem Dafoe and Forest Whitaker.  For more on the film, watch the trailer or read all our previous coverage.

At the recent Los Angeles press day, I landed a video interview with Harrelson and Cooper.  They talked about the way they collaborated to flesh out Harrelson’s character, the film Cooper was trying to make, the characters, deleted scenes, and more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Woody Harrelson and Scott Cooper:

  • How the film shows characters that are having the layers peeled off.  Cooper talks about the film he wanted to make.
  • They talk about how they collaborated to flesh out Harrelson’s character.
  • Harrelson usually likes to do something different on every take.  How was he on this project?
  • Deleted scenes talk.
