Brad Pitt is in final discussions to star in the World War II drama Fury for writer-director David Ayer. We http://movieweb.com/david-ayers-fury-goes-to-qed-international/reported last month that QED International acquired David Ayer's spec script.
The story is set in 1945 at the tail end of World War II, centering on a five-man crew of an American tank dubbed Fury, who battle a desperate and defeated group of Nazi soldiers. No details were given regarding Brad Pitt's character. Here's what filmmaker David Ayer had to say about the project.
"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."
