Out of the Furnace is not Ashes, but is Dust to Dust

by Lucy Leitner

The new Christian Bale movie has not yet commenced filming in Pittsburgh, but the name has already changed. Indeed, the Braddock-shot film will now be called Dust to Dust. Apparently there was some confusion about the film’s relation to Out of this Furnace, a 70-year-old historical novel by Thomas Bell. Though the book details the struggles of three generations of an Austro-Hungarian immigrant family, the mere article that differentiates between the two may lead to confusion. Then there’s also the fact that both are set Braddock.

In other Dust to Dust news, the movie is currently shooting in Wheeling, WV. And now Forrest Whitaker’s in it, which makes the people of Braddock happy.
