“We put them through martial arts training and physical combat classes,” says Ayer, whose film is released Oct. 17. “It’s a great ice breaker for actors. There’s something very honest about being punched in the face.”

So far the only festival appearance for David Ayer's Fury is as the closing night film at the BFI London Film Festival, but that's a premiere that comes after the October 17 domestic release date so the big question is to now wonder when and if it will find itself among the selection at either the New York or Telluride Film Festivals.

Olympus Has Fallen came out at the same time as White House Down (Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx) and was probably easily dismissed if you saw the latter, like I did, as another one of those patriotic America Yeah! movies. But in reality it was a completely different animal and with the rumours that Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart and Morgan Freeman are all set to returns to their roles for the sequel, they’ve wasted no time pinning down a director to take it to the next stage.
Going for the imaginative London Has Fallen, fallen down, fallen down…the new director has been announced as Fredrik Bond, the man who also directed the Shia Labeouf-starring Charlie Countryman, as they move events from the White House to London.

Shia Labeouf has not had the best of times since shooting David Ayer’s World War II movie Fury in the U.K. last year. In December, artist Daniel Clowes claimed the actor’s short film HowardCantour.com plagiarized his 2007 comic Justin M. Damiano, and in June, police led Labeouf away in handcuffs from a Broadway performance of Cabaret because of his allegedly disruptive behavior.
But Fury writer-director David Ayer has nothing but nice things to say about the Transformers star, who voluntarily sought treatment for alcohol addiction following the Cabaret incident “He’s amazing, a freakin’ gifted guy,” says Ayer. »
