David Ayer Shies Away From Cops For Next Project, Is Making A WWII Tank Movie!!
The Kidd here...
After a string of films structured around various parts of the LAPD (going out on a high note with his best, END OF WATCH), David Ayer has begun moving into other story-telling areas. He just recently wrapped on TEN, which, from what I hear, gives you a re-invented Schwarzenegger, in addition to a cast that features Sam Worthington, Joe Manganiello, Terrence Howard, Josh Holloway and Mireille Enos, but, once that film is complete (scheduled for release next January by Open Road), it looks like Ayer will be taking a trip back to World War II Nazi Germany for his next project.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Ayer will write and direct FURY, which tells the tale of a five-man American tank crew off on a mission against a desperate German army that is on the brink of defeat in April 1945, a few short weeks before Germany's unconditional surrender in May of that year.
What type of approach is Ayer looking to take? "I want to bring a fresh execution to the genre. What these men went through is worthy of a complex, honest, hard portrayal. This will have incredible, visceral action and complex, rich characters. I plan to bring tank combat to life in a way that lands with a modern audience."
QED International has already picked up the script and will fund the film, but no word yet on a potential production or release window, or potential cast either for that matter.
