Brad Pitt May Lead David Ayer’s WWII Drama Fury

David Ayer's upcoming WWII drama Fury is close to locking in Brad Pitt as the lead. "The action takes place in 1945 as the Nazi regime collapses and the five-man crew of an American tank called Fury battles a desperate German army," Deadline writes. Ayer — the man behind End of WatchHarsh Times, and the Training Day script — wrote and will direct. Pitt will have to do a lot to distract us from thinking about Lt. Aldo Raine the whole time.
