Logan Lerman Finds Fury
He'll crew a tank with Brad Pitt

Percy Jackson, Logan Lerman

He might be the son of a god – in the Percy Jackson films, at least – but Logan Lerman will need more than a little help to survive in a new assignment. He’s just joined the cast of David Ayer’s tank thriller Fury.

Lerman is the latest recruit to sign on, joining Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf in the story of a tank crew battling behind enemy lines in 1945 as the Nazi regime crumbles.

Despite their leadership falling apart, the German army posed a massive, desperate threat to Allied tanks and the men inside them. This particular crew faces a dangerous mission deep in enemy territory.

Ayer, who last directed End Of Watch and has Ten set for release next year, wrote the script on spec and sold it to production company QED, which has now raised an $80 million budget to shoot in the autumn.

Lerman will be back on our screens in Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters on August 7 (see the trailer below). He’s also playing Ham, one of Russell Crowe’s sons, in Noah, set to flood UK cinemas on March 28 next year.
