Fury: A New Film from David Ayer
At this year’s E3 expo, Wargaming.net announced that we were joining forces with Sony Pictures Entertainment to promote their latest action drama Fury. Writer-director David Ayer (best known for Training Day , The Fast and The Furious and End of Watch), producer Bill Block, co-producer Alex Ott, and associate producer Owen Thornton were there to make it official, and after a first look during the show, we’re giving you more info about this exciting film.
Wargaming consistently supports educational efforts, especially those focused on World War II history. These efforts include historical publications, museum partnerships, and backing the restoration of historical combat vehicles. Movies are just as much a part of that, which is why we're taking the opportunity to shine a spotlight on Fury. Fury will be released on November 14 in the United States, and will continue to roll out worldwide* afterwards. Wargaming’s part in the promotion includes in-game content based on the movie, as well as community and social media events leading up to the film’s release.
The cast of Fury includes Brad Pitt, starring as Wardaddy. Also starring in the film are Shia LaBeouf (Transformers, Constantine, Disturbia), Logan Lerman (The Butterfly Effect, the Percy Jackson movies, The Three Musketeers), Michael Peña (Shooter, Gangster Squad), Jon Bernthal (The Pacific, The Walking Dead), Jason Isaacs (The Patriot, Black Hawk Down) and Scott Eastwood (Invictus, Texas Chainsaw 3D).
In the movie, it is April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany. Written and directed by David Ayer, the film is produced by Bill Block, David Ayer, John Lesher, and Ethan Smith. The executive producers are Brad Pitt, Sasha Shapiro, Anton Lessine, and Ben Waisbren.
*the UK release date: October 24th; France: October 22nd
