Michael Pena appears set to re-team with his End of Watch director David Ayer. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Pena will star in the World War II action project Fury opposite Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman.
Set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945, Fury follows the battle-hardened Wardaddy, who commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
Pena, who will soon provide a voice in DreamWorks Animation's Turbo, will play Fury's alcoholic tank driver.
QED is producing the film with John Lesher’s Le Grisbi Productions and Ethan Smith. Alex Ott is co-producing the feature with Ayer. Principal photography is set to begin in September 2013 and Columbia anticipates releasing Fury on November 14, 2014.
