The actor teams up with the likes of Shia LeBeouf, Jon Bernthal, Scott Eastwood (who you may know better as Clint Eastwood's son, whose glamour shots have been burning up cyberspace) and Michael Peña to tell the story of a small time battle crew who seem doomed from the start in 1945. Read the synopsis:
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.
I assume LeBeouf is the "rookie soldier," but aside from Pitt I am most interested to see Peña and Bernthal in the film, both of whom I think are on their way to become huge stars. David Ayer, who wrote and directed End of Watch starring Peña, also helmed this project. So that's also a plus.
FURY is in theaters November 14.
