Brad Pitt Heads Back to World War II (Again) for ‘Fury’
Brad Pitt has been everywhere and done everything in movies, and now he’s heading back to World War II for David Ayer’s upcoming film ‘Fury.’
That’s right, according to Deadline, Brad Pitt is returning to World War II for yet another movie. The last time Pitt found himself embroiled in the war against ze Germans was for Quentin Tarantino in ‘Inglourious Basterds,’ but this time around it’s a little different.
Pitt has signed on for David Ayer’s ‘Fury,’ which takes place in 1945 as the German regime is falling apart, and a squad of soldiers assigned to an American tank called Fury battle it out against what remains of their adversaries. Ayer will be keeping his own personal approach to action in mind with ‘Fury,’ of which he says:
[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.
Hopefully much in the same way he brought the daily lives of police officers to the big screen with last year’s ‘End of Watch,’ which Ayer wrote and directed.
