First Look: Pitt, Lerman, LaBeouf & More in David Ayer's 'Fury' Movie
Awesome! With shooting just about to start on David Ayer's new WWII tank movie Fury, the director has debuted a first look at the cast (and their tank) in a photo on Twitter. The shot shows the entire impressive cast, which includes Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal. It's obviously more of a promo shot, but there's still a gritty feel to it. I don't even know much about the story yet, but I'm very excited for a WWII movie set around one tank boasting this kind of fantastic cast. Sony is excited too, because it has a November 2014 release set. I hope we see more photos once they start shooting.
Ayer: "@thecampaignbook @LoganLerman @realmichaelpena @jonnybernthal... The Crew of the Fury"
Written & directed by David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), Fury follows a crew of Americans who embark on a brave mission. Ayer said it will "bring a fresh execution to the genre. What these men went through is worthy of a complex, honest portrayal. This will have incredible, visceral action and complex rich characters. I plan to bring tank combat to life in a way that lands with a modern audience." Shooting on Fury begins this month. As the Allies make their final push, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. Columbia has Fury set for a release November 14th, 2014 next year.
