It wasn't that long ago that Brad Pitt was carving swastikas into the foreheads of Nazis as Aldo the Apache in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," but he's already going back to World War II and that prospect has us excited for a few different reasons.
"Fury" is the next film from David Ayer, who recently delivered the better-than-expected "End of Watch," and this time he's following a team of men as they ride in a different vehicle of justice, a tank. You can see the first picture from the production and the entire cast in the photo above.
The cast, including Pitt, is stacked from top to bottom and includes Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Peña, and Jon Bernthal from "The Walking Dead."

When Ridley Scott snatched up Cormac McCarthy's first feature-length screenplay essentially the instant people knew it existed, we knew that "The Counselor" was a project worth playing attention to. That was all before it started attracting talent like Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, and Penelope Cruz. This was definitely something that wasn't leaving our radar any time soon.
Now we have not only the trailer that dropped yesterday, but Entertainment Weekly just released two photos from "The Counselor" that do little else but prove that there are several good looking people in the movie. Still, this is one that we absolutely cannot wait to see.
Check out the trailer and two new photos from "The Counselor" after the jump!
Throughout the storied, troubled production of "World War Z," Brad Pitt has stuck by the epic zombie takeover film, and now that the positive reviews are surfacing, it's beginning to seem like he had the right idea all along.
When MTV News' Josh Horowitz caught up with Pitt in Times Square during an event for the film there, Pitt explained how his own paternal instincts mirror his chraracter's. "Always, I mean, always. It's a papa bear — it's just instinctual," Pitt said. "It kicks in. It's kind of amazing how that happens, but comforting."
Pitt spoke passionately about the film, having had to weather scrutiny from the media before the film even screened. "It's just big and fun, and this is the most intense thing you're going to see all year," he said. "It's the most intense thing I've done. We're really thrilled by it."
"World War Z" opens in theaters tomorrow, June 21.
FROM MTV GEEK
Brad Pitt surprised fans in Hoboken, New Jersey two nights ago with a screening of his epic zombie flick, "World War Z." The actor wanted to throw a screening for the people that he made the movie for in the first place, so he decided to bring the film to New Jersey, one of the locations featured in "World War Z."
"I said OK but we can't do it without showing it to the people we made the film for," Pitt said. "We got to do a screening for the fans, so we decided there's no better place to do that than Jersey."
MTV Geek had a man on the ground for the screening, and he was able to see the movie and the fan reaction first hand. Head over there now to see how it all went down!
So much for the plan for Brad Pitt to star in David Fincher's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." According to a new report, the actor is no longer a prospective part of the project.
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed Pitt's departure (if he ever was attached), but it's not all bad news for the Jules Verne adaptation. Apparently the Australian government has offered Walt Disney Pictures a 30 percent rebate if the studio opts to film the movie down under.
His status as a celebrity and paparazzi magnet aside, Brad Pitt doesn't get enough credit for picking great directors to work with. We know he's homeboys with David Fincher, and the man likes working with Soderbergh, but his work with "Killing Them Softly" director Andrew Dominik should be filed alongside those other two.
Speaking with MTV News' Josh Horowitz, Pitt shared what he looks for in a director.
"Certainly one, great skills with the camera, with the frame," Pitt said. "More importantly, all having a distinct point of view with a specific voice and what they're telling me. They know exactly what they're after. You need that at the helm. You need for the film to have some kind of impact, needs to have that weight behind it."
David Fincher's "20,000 Leagues Under The Sea" is the movie that's taken forever to get made. The director's been attached to the project for more than two years, and now we're learning that the film has been put on hold by Disney.
Variety is reporting that production on "20,000 Leagues" has been put on a "three-month hold" while Disney waits for writer Steven Zaillian to submit his new script. It's worth noting that Fincher never got a green light on the project despite working on it since 2010, so Disney's decision following the three-month hiatus is a pretty big deal.
