Brad Pitt’s upcoming film, Fury, now has itself a new banner. The movie is being directed by David Ayer, the man behind End of Watch, Street Kings, Sabotage, and who wrote Training Day. The film will tell a gritty, tense tale set during World War II about a group of soldiers navigating a tank behind enemy lines.
“April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and out-gunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.”
The film will feature the considerable talents of not only Pitt, but Jon Bernthal, Michael PeÃ±a, Logan Lerman, and Shia LaBeouf, and is set to premiere on November 14. That’s the same weekend as Dumb & Dumber To. Talk about counter-programming…
