Just like that, Brad Ingelsby is becoming “a name.” Need proof? In the same Deadline story that tells of Forest Whitaker and Billy Bob Thornton potentially being cast in his new script, Out of the Furnace — which, I should mention, happens to be led by Christian Bale — it’s reported that Indian Paintbrush have shelled out six figures for his latest work, The Signal.

His films, including a plethora now available in a stunningly thorough Criterion set, take on the esoteric sides of America, from bluegrass musicians to the wonders of polka to the taste of Creole cooking. These […]
