Jason Isaacs

Given that writer-director David Ayer showed off the main cast of his latest, tank thriller Fury a couple of weeks ago, we weren’t expecting a new piece of casting. We are, however, happy to learn that Empire favourite Jason Isaacs is aboard.

Fury finds Brad Pitt as an Army sergeant nicknamed Wardaddy (unless his family had some incredible foresight when it came to naming their sprogs) who commands a five-man hunk of battle-armour and guts through Germany as the Nazi regime begins to crumble in 1945. The enemy cannot be counted out entirely, however, and the mission will be a tough one.

Michael Pena, Scott Eastwood, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman are the crew going through hell alongside their commander. Isaacs is set to play a veteran captain who advises Pitt when he needs it.

Ayer is putting the cast through their paces right now in London. As for Isaacs, he has A Single Shot, Field Of Lost Shoes and Things People Do under his belt. He’s also set to appear in a segment of portmanteau pic Rio, I Love You.
