Brad Pitt joins David Ayer's World War II drama Fury
David Ayer is going in a different direction with his World War II drama, FURY. Ayer, who is well known for his script writing with works like TRAINING DAY and END OF WATCH will serve as both writer and director on this project. What's so great about it is that now Brad Pitt is attached to lead the film.
The plot take place in, "1945 as the Nazi regime collapses and the five-man crew of an American tank called Fury battles a desperate German army."
With this film, Ayer previously said that he wanted to, "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.”
I say the more Ayer the better. Bringing Pitt on board something like this will only make it a million times more awesome. I love seeing films about WWI and WWII so this is definitely one on my radar.
