New Fury Pictures Clank In
David Ayer's Shermanation takes shape

Like Bryan Singer over at X-Towers, David Ayer is a director who likes to take a refreshingly lo-fi approach to publicising his movie, with Twitter and Instagram to the fore. Fury, a World War 2 tank movie that's got us dusting off our old copies of Kelly's Heroes and Battle Of The Bulge, is taking shape on Ayer's Twitter feed. Here's a new batch of stills showing the titular Sherman and its crew of battle-weary tankmen in action on location in Oxfordshire.

Written and directed by Training Day scribe Ayer, Fury is an intriguing departure from his previous, more urban terrain. His handheld cop thriller End Of Watch, depicting Los Angeles as an urban battleground, was a highlight of 2012. We're looking forward to seeing what he does with a bigger budget and more toys.

Brad Pitt stars as an US Army sergeant nicknamed Wardaddy, commanding 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 serious challenges.

Michael Pena, Scott Eastwood, Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf and Jon Bernthal are also among the cast, with Ayer taking aim at a November 14, 2014 release in the US and October 24 in these parts.
