A new addition has been made to the ensemble cast of David Ayer's Fury. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that Harry Potter franchise star Jason Isaacs is joining Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal for the World War II actioner.
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.
Isaacs, who recently starred in A Single Shot, will play an experienced captain that Wardaddy turns to for advice.
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 has begun and Columbia Pictures anticipates releasing the film on November 14, 2014.
