Although his character in this new WW II movie has some similarities with the one he played in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious , Brad Pitt in Fury looks grittier and darker.
Directed by David Ayer, who also directed , and wrote , Fury makes no attempts at the humor displayed in Tarantino’s Basterds. The movie’s script is more thoughtful, the setting more grim, and the action more rough.
Pitt plays Wardaddy, a commander of a troop of American soldiers who are on a mission to attack the very center of Nazi Germany. Which explains the Macklmore-style undercut that the actor has been seen sporting since November of last year.
Part of his team on the deadly mission are Shia LaBeouf, Jon Bernthal from , Logan Lerman who was last seen in
r, and Scott Eastwood, son of film legend, Clint Eastwood.
While the movie’s themes and talented cast has earned it much media attention, Shia LaBeouf’s antics on the set have also caused controversy. It has been reported that the actor has gone to extreme measures to internalize his role as one of the more hardened soldiers in the trenches. He has reportedly gone as far as refusing to take showers, and pulling his own tooth.
LaBeouf was apparently moved to a different hotel, away from the cast and crew because he stuck to his unhygienic routine, despite warnings from the director and Pitt.
