Filming has only just begun on David Ayer’s WWII tank action thriller “Fury,” but the director has already taken to Twitter to share the first official images from the film. Brad Pitt leads the cast that is rounded out by Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman.
Set in 1945 as the Nazi regime collapses, Pitt plays the Commander of a Sherman tank who leads a five-man crew in a battle against desperate German troops. All five leads are pictured in the surprisingly stylized photo Ayer shared today, lounging on their tank GQ style. Yesterday, Ayer also shared an in-camera close-up image of Lerman, looking a lot more bloody and war-ridden and certainly more grownup than he’s looked in any of his other roles.
Filming on “Fury” is now underway and a November 14, 2014 (read: very Oscar friendly) release is planned. See the first images via @DavidAyerMovies below.
