Jason Isaacs Heads Back to War in David Ayer's 'Fury' with Brad Pitt
Following his wrap-up as Lucius Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II in 2011, Jason Isaacs has laid pretty low key. Last year, he starred in the sadly canceled, but stellar, NBC series "Awake," and he can be seen in indies like Sweetwater and A Single Shot from this year as well. Now he's getting back into some big films with an impressive cast as THR reports Isaacs has joined the cast of David Ayer's World War II tank thriller Fury. The film already stars Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal as the five crew members of an American Sherman tank called Fury in the final days of WW II.
Isaacs has joined the film as the confident captain and veteran on the team to which Pitt looks to for advice. That makes six people rather than five, so maybe Isaacs isn't actually part of the tank team, but merely their commanding officer. Anyway, the film is currently shooting in London (see the official first look photo here), and marks a return to war for the actor who has previously starred in The Patriot, Black Hawk Down, Green Zone and Windtalkers. This sounds promising, and following Ayer's approach to the crime thriller genre with End of Watch, we're hoping he has something fresh up his sleeve for Fury as well.
