End of Watch director and Training Day screenwriter David Ayer already has Brad Pitt lined up for his next film, the WWII drama Fury. Now Shia LaBeouf is negotiating for a co-starring role. "The story follows the commander of a Sherman tank and its five-man crew on a mission behind enemy lines in April 1945 as Nazi Germany collapses," Variety reports. "LaBeouf would play a member of the crew." We have to assume Shia was approached because of that deft vehicular work in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
