Winona Ryder, Alfred Molina and Jon Bernthal have joined HBO's upcoming miniseries “Show Me a Hero,” a network representative told TheWrap. From “The Wire” co-creator David Simon, the miniseries is based on the Lisa Belkin nonfiction book of the same name. It tells the story of a mayor, Nick Wasicsko (Oscar Isaac), who's charged with building low-income housing in his hometown of Yonkers, N.Y. The project brings to the surface class prejudices, almost shuts down the local government and ruins the mayor's political career.

Ryder will portray Vinni Restiano, a Yonkers councilwoman who lost her seat due to her vote, but staged a comeback four years later and won as City Council president.

Most directors do their best to prevent actors punching each other. But during last year’s U.K. shoot for the World War II tank movie Fury, filmmaker David Ayer had his five principals—Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia Labeouf, Jon Bernthal, and Michael Peña—start the day by engaging in fisticuffs.
“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 who was the best fighter out of the quintet? “Jon Bernthal, »

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. However, while we wait and mull over those possibilities, Sony has released a brand new trailer for the World War II tank drama for you to chew on. Set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945, Fury find the Allies making their final push in the European Theater, while a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.

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. »

Speculation over where and when David Ayer's Fury would have its world premiere has grown considerably since the film recently moved from November 14 to October 17 and got itself a nice big spread in the New York Times. Clearly Sony thinks they have a major Oscar contender on their hands, or at least an awards season player on some level, and now we know where it will have its European premiere, that being the BFI London Film Festival as it was announced this morning. Fury will close the London Fest on October 19, which means two days after the film hits theaters Stateside, which could still mean the world premiere won't be at a festival at all, but merely a red carpet screening in Los Angeles. However, at this point, I have to assume Sony is going to want to go bigger than that and with the Toronto and Venice lineups all but locked, »

With the Toronto International Film Festival and the New York Film Festival solidifying their lineups this week and the Venice Film Festival kicking off later this month, you might think that there are no more surprises left to come in the fall festival season. You would be wrong. Today, the BFI London Film Festival announced that David Ayer's "Fury" starring Brad Pitt, Shia Labeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, and Jon Bernthal will makes its european premiere as its closing film. The movie's wide release date was recently moved up from a November 14th to October 17th, raising questions about the WWII flim's Oscar viability. It appears that Sony believes the film has a shot at making an impression as such. The big question right now is: Which festival will get the world premiere for 'Fury'? Tiff and Venice both seem unlikely at this point, with both of the slates pretty much set. »
