THE MOVIE: David Ayer – the award-winning writer of Training Day, and writer/director of End of Watch and the upcoming Ten (with Arnold Schwarzenegger) is back with another action-thriller, this time it’s tank vs. Nazi film called Fury, which he will also direct. Production may begin this fall.
According to Deadline, Fury will take place in 1945 as the Nazi regime collapses and the five man crew of an American tank called Fury battles a desperate German army.
Ayer says he wants to “bring a fresh execution to the genre. What these men went through is worthy of a complex, honest portrayal. This will have incredible, visceral action and complex rich characters. I plan to bring tank combat to life in a way that lands with a modern audience.”
