Brad Pitt is entering the final stage of his career. Pitt, 49, said he plans to retire from acting when he reaches his ’50s and stick to producing things. Whether he follows through with it or not is another story, but if it is true, these final roles won’t want to be missed. The most recent role he accepted is for the David Ayer World War II drama, Fury.
Ayer is coming off the critically acclaimed, and quite brilliant, End of Watch, the cop movie starring Michael Pena and Jake Gyllenhaal. The movie is being made by the indie film company QED International and is the most expensive script they have acquired to date.
With Pitt on board, that money might be worth it.
The action 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.
I doubt that Brad Pitt will be playing the same character he did in his last World War II movie, Inglourious Basterds. Then again, it would be cool if he did.
David Ayer’s next film, Ten with Arnold Schwarzenegger, hits theaters in January 2014.
