According to The Playlist, Alberto Iglesias will be scoring the crime drama Out of the Furnace. The film is written and directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) and stars Christian Bale and Casey Affleck as two brothers in an economically depressed part of the American Rust Belt. When one brother has to go to prison, the other is lured into a ruthless gang. Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe and Sam Shepard are co-starring in the movie. Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran (Red Riding Hood, Orphan) are producing through Appian Way and  Ridley Scott, Tony Scott and Michael Costigan (Cyrus, Being Flynn) are producing for Scott Free Productions. Relativity Media’s Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter, Limitless) is also producing. Out of the Furnace is currently in post-production and is expected to be released in 2013.

Iglesias is coming off a busy year, in which the composer had three new scores released, including the Academy Award-nominated Tinker, Tailor, Solidier, Spy and Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin I Live In.
