Shia LaBeouf joins WWII film

Shia LaBeouf is looking to make a comeback. Since “Transformers” and “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, his stock has steadily declined. Now he’s joining the WWII film “Fury” from director David Ayer. The film 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 German (From Comingsoon.net). Brad Pitt is attached to star, so this could be a good career move for him.

Brad Pitt headed back to WWII

Brad Pitt’s work in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” was amazing. Now he’s headed back to WWII, but in a much more serious tone with “Fury”. The film will center around an American tank crew who operates a tank called Fury during the final days of the war. David Ayer is directing. He helmed last year’s “End of Watch” starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena. He’s also helming next year’s “Ten”, starring  Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sam Worthington. We’ll see how this turns out. I wasn’t in love with “End of Watch” as much as a lot of people were. But it was a solid film.

Terrance Howard (“Red Tails”, “Iron Man”) and Dawn Olivieri (“House of Lies”) may join Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sam Worthington in “Breacher” (Previously titled “Ten”). The film centers around an elite DEA task force that deals with the world’s deadliest drug cartels. Specializing in complex mobile operations, the team executes a tactical raid on a cartel safe house. What looks to be a typical raid turns out to be an elaborate theft operation, pre-planned by the DEA squad. After hiding millions in stolen cash, the team believes their secret is safe – until someone begins assassinating them one by one. David Ayer is directing.
