Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman look rugged in the first image from Fury
David Ayer took to his Twitter account late yesterday to post the first image from his new film, FURY. It’s clearly a staged image, but it features all of the film’s major stars, including from left to right, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Brad Pitt, Joe Bernthal and Shia LaBeouf. It’s quite a cast for director David Ayer, who can probably be counted on to once again deliver a gritty film, just like his HARSH TIMES, STREET KINGS and END OF WATCH. But this time, the film is set at the end of WWII in 1945.
The film follows a tough and seasoned army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) that leads the five man crew of a Sherman tank on a dangerous mission deep inside enemy territory. Facing horrible odds, the five man team press on as they stage a heroic strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. FURY hits theaters on November 14th, 2014. This cast and story alone should makes me excited for the film, but I’m loving the first look. Let’s hope David Ayer can find success moving away from the gritty cop dramas he has done recently.
