The story centers on a five-man tank crew that brought the Nazis to their knees at the end of World War II.
David Ayer most recently wrote and directed End of Watch, which starred Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña. He is currently directing Ten, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Joe Manganiello and Sam Worthington.
Here is what David Ayer had to say about the project.
"My goal is 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."
Production will begin this fall.
