Scott Eastwood Joins Fury
Clint's son on for David Ayer's tank drama

David Ayer's Fury has another cast member. Scott Eastwood, Clint's scion, has joined Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena, Logan Lerman and Jon Bernthal in the World War II drama as Sergeant Miles, a member of the tank regiment.

Unless we've miscounted that makes more than the five crew members of the titular tank, so assume that unless he's hitching a ride, Eastwood Jr. won't be following in his dad's Kelly Heroes' treads at the sharp end of things.

Eastwood appeared in this year's Texas Chainsaw 3D and as Springbok fly half Joel Stransky in his dad's Invictus. There was also a cameo in Flags Of Our Fathers, so that period lark shouldn't come as a major shock to the system.

The film's title comes from the tank itself, Fury, a five-man beast of a vehicle fighting through Germany as the Nazi regime collapses in 1945. Despite its leadership crumbling, the Wehrmacht continues to be a big threat, and the crew of the tank face real challenges.

According to Ayer, authenticity is the watchword, so there'll be none of those madcap Donald Sutherland antics or Clint coolness that made Kelly's Heroes such a subversive treat. Ayer's spec script, originally snaffled by QED International, aims to bring "a fresh execution to the genre. What these men went through is worthy of a complex, honest portrayal. This will have incredible, visceral action and complex rich characters. I plan to bring tank combat to life in a way that lands with a modern audience.”

Fury rumbles into US cinemas on June 21, 2014.
