Shia LaBeouf in Talks to Join Brad Pitt in David Ayer’s WWII Film FURY

     April 23, 2013


Once you have Brad Pitt set as your star, it becomes quite a bit easier to fill out the rest of your cast.  Earlier this month, Pitt committed to the lead role in End of Watch director David Ayer’s World War II film Fury.  The story takes place in 1945 as the Nazi regime collapses and the five-man crew of an American tank called Fury battles a desperate German army.  Pitt is onboard to star as an army sergeant named “Wardaddy,” and now Variety reports that Shia LaBeouf is in talks to co-star.  Further details are unknown, but LaBeouf would play a member of the Fury crew should his deal make.

Ayer wrote the script for Fury himself on spec, and with LaBeouf now onboard I’m really interested to see how the rest of the cast fills out.  LaBeouf was most recently seen in Robert Redford’s thriller The Company You Keep and the Sundance film The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman.  Just yesterday, we learned that he’s attached to reunite with his Disturbia director D.J. Caruso on the espionage film Spy’s Kid alongside Robert De Niro, but with production on Fury set to begin this fall, the WWII film will likely be his next project.  Fury hits theaters on November 14, 2014.
