Shia LaBeouf reportedly pulled out his own tooth and refused to shower during filming, angering the cast and crew.
GENRE: Action, Drama, War
DIRECTOR: David Ayer
Starring: Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman
The film is set during the last month of the European Theater of war during World War II in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push into Nazi Germany, a battle-hardened U.S. Army sergeant in the 2nd Armored Division named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a M4A3E8 Sherman tank called “Fury” and its five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. The film director David Ayer, a studio writer (Training Day) and indie film director (End of Watch), had been meditating for years on the Fury screenplay, but he wrote it in a burst about 18 months ago… “It sort of exploded out,” he said, “I wrote it for me.” According to him, the resulting movie was intended both as a personal journey and as a correction to the pop cultural record. In what promises to be one of the most daring studio movies in an awards season that will bring several World War II films, Ayer, Pitt and a band of producers backed by Sony Pictures Entertainment are poised to deliver what the popular culture has rarely seen!
