Brad Pitt is going back to World War II, but this time as a Sergeant. Though it might be hard to look at Pitt and see anyone except Inglorious Basterds‘ Lt. Aldo Raine, get ready to meet Wardaddy, the war-hardened hero of Fury.

Shortly after news broke that Sony Pictures had acquired the rights to Fury they set a November 14, 2014 release date. Directed by David Ayer (Training Day), the film is set in April of 1945 in the European Theater and will focus on a group of five American soldiers on a Sherman tank who encounter a German division. Principal photography is expected to begin in September.

Even though it seems like a far way off,  November 2014 blockbuster real estate is quickly disappearing. Fury comes out just a week after the scheduled releases of Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and one week prior to Mockingjay Part 1, the third film in the Hunger Games series.
