Production is currently underway in London on writer/director David Ayer’s (End of Watch) World War II tank film Fury, and Ayer has been sharing a number of images from the set on his Twitter account. The Training Day scribe wrote the period script on spec and eventually sold it for a cool $1 million to QED, with Columbia Pictures boarding the project earlier this year. The story takes place in 1945 as the Nazi regime is in collapse and revolves around the five-man crew of an American tank called Fury that battles a desperate German army. The new images offer a glimpse at how Ayer is shooting the tank-set scenes, and confirm that the director is shooting the pic on good old fashioned film. So far this one looks and sounds great, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the first footage from the pic.
Hit the jump to take a look at some behind-the-scenes images. The film stars Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal, Michael Pena, and Jason Isaacs. Fury opens on November 14, 2014.
Here’s the official synopsis for Fury:
FURY is set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her 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.
