Production

The film is being produced by Relativity Media, with Jeff Waxman serving as executive producer. Leonardo DiCaprio, Tony Scott and Ridley Scott are among the film's producers. Director Scott Cooper read an article about Braddock, Pennsylvania, a declining steel industry town outside of Pittsburgh, and the efforts to revitalize it, lead by mayor John Fetterman. After visiting, Cooper was inspired to use the borough as the backdrop for a film. Cooper developed an original story and co-wrote the screenplay with Brad Ingelsby. The story has no relation to Out of This Furnace, a 1941 historical novel by Thomas Bell, set in Braddock.

Production began in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area on April 13, 2012, and wrapped on June 1, 2012. The majority of filming took place in Braddock, with additional filming in nearby North Braddock, Imperial, and Rankin. Prison scenes were shot in the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia, at the former State Penitentiary in Moundsville. Filming also took place in rural Beaver County, including a deer hunting scene in Raccoon Creek State Park, and a mill scene in Koppel. The Carrie Furnace, an abandoned blast furnace near Braddock, served as the location for the film's finale.

Originally, it was announced that Alberto Iglesias had reached an agreement to compose the score for the film. However, Dickon Hinchliffe has taken over duties for scoring the film. Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder will also record a new song for the film.
