It looks like Brad Pitt might be getting in the driver's seat of a tank in Fury, the World War II pic from writer/director David Ayer (End of Watch).  Reports have Pitt in final negotiations to lead the picture, which "takes place in 1945 as the Nazi regime collapses and the five man crew of an American tank called Fury battles a desperate German army.” Ayer previously said that his goal with the film is “to bring tank combat to life in a way that lands with a modern audience.”  With Pitt possibly on board, Ayer will certainly have that audience to play to.  Hit the jump for more. Deadline reports that Pitt is in final talks to star in Fury, but no casting details have been released.  Ayer plans to start production on Fury this September.  Qed International picked up Ayer's spec script earlier this year for a cool million. »
