Brad Pitt
Columbia Pictures has picked up domestic distribution rights, and a good portion of available international rights, to David Ayer's "Fury," starring Brad Pitt as an army sergeant leading a deadly mission into Nazi Germany near the close of World War II.

QED International and John Lesher's Le Grisbi Productions are producing the film; the two companies previously partnered for sci-fi hit "District 9." This is Ayer's second collaboration with QED, following 2012's South Central saga "End of Watch." 

Here's a more in-depth plot synopsis:

FURY is set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945.  As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, 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.  Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
