David Ayer’s World War II action-thriller Fury already has Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman and Shia LaBeouf on board to star. Now another actor has signed up, as Variety reports that Michael Pena to star. The film will reunite Pena and Ayer following the success of End of Watch.
All the actors attached so far will play members of a five-man U.S. tank crew, who battle a desperate unit of Nazi soldiers towards the end of World War II. Pena is set to be Wardaddy, the tank’s driver and a brutal alcoholic who has vowed never to go into combat sober.
David Ayer is directing from his own screenplay, with filming set to begin in the autumn, with a November 14th, 2014 release already set.
