Posted Fri Jan 17, 2014 at 10:00 AM PST by

Scott Cooper's 2013 crime thriller is planned for Blu-ray in March.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is working on 'Out of the Furnace' is planned for Blu-ray on March 11.

From Scott Cooper, the critically acclaimed writer and director of 'Crazy Heart,' comes a gripping and powerful drama about family, fate, circumstance and justice. Russell Baze (Christian Bale) leads a dead-end life – he works a meaningless steel mill job all day, and cares for his terminally ill father at night. When Russell's brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) returns home from Iraq, he is lured into one of the Northeast's most ruthless crime rings and mysteriously disappears. When the police fail to solve the case, Russell puts his life at risk in order to seek justice for his brother.

The Blu-ray/Digital Copy combo will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include four featurettes and a theatrical trailer.

The suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
