Some of the biggest names in Hollywood are set to star in an acclaimed director’s new short film project.

Newly-wed Brad Pitt, recent Oscar nominee Leonardo DiCaprio and Hollywood vanguard Robert De Niro are all part of Martin Scorsese’s short film.

Pitt and De Niro were recently seen out and about at the set while shooting the film in New York City.

Penned by Wolf of Wall Street writer Terence Winter, the short film is set to be screened for a campaign for Melco-Crown Entertainment (MCE).

This is the first on-screen collaboration between the three actors and the prestigious director.

Pitt, who was last seen in the big screen adaptation of the best selling novel World War Z and the Oscar nominated film 12 Years a Slave, recently made headlines due to his recent marriage to Angelina Jolie. He will next be seen in the world war 2 film, Fury.

Brad Pitt flashed his wedding ring at a museum – just days after tying the knot in France.

The 50-year-old Oscar winner braved pouring rain to attend the event at The Tank Museum in Bovington in Dorset.

Brad wore dark sunglasses as he entered the site to promote Second World War film Fury, in which he plays a battle-hardened army sergeant.

He removed his shades and posed for pictures beside Logan Lerman, Jon Bernthal and David Ayer, writer, director and producer for the film.

The photocall came days after the actor wed Angelina Jolie at the Chateau Miraval in France, in the presence of the couple’s six children.

Brad was photographed wearing a gold ring on his wedding finger during the museum event.

Fury, set in 1945, also stars Shia LaBeouf and Michael Pena as an American crew embarking on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.

Brad plays army sergeant Wardaddy, who commands a Sherman tank and a five-man crew on the assignment.

Wardaddy and his men are outnumbered and outgunned and face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike Nazi Germany when a rookie soldier is thrust into their platoon.

The film will be released nationwide on October 24.

Most directors do their best to prevent actors punching each other. But during last year’s U.K. shoot for the World War II tank movie Fury, filmmaker David Ayer had his five principals—Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia Labeouf, Jon Bernthal, and Michael Peña—start the day by engaging in fisticuffs.

‘Fury’ director says audiences will be ‘shocked’ by Shia LaBeouf’s performance Eddie Redmayne on playing (and meeting) Stephen Hawking

“We put them through martial arts training and physical combat classes,” says Ayer, whose film is released Oct. 17. “It’s a great ice breaker for actors. There’s something very honest about being punched in the face.”

So who was the best fighter out of the quintet? “Jon Bernthal,” Logan says without hesitation. “Jon is actually the most experienced. He was really a boxer for many years—still is. I mean, that guy would go at it to the point where he’d have blood running down his face. Him and Michael Peña went at it pretty hard. He’ll kick any of our asses in a fight, but he was very nice to all of us.”

“It sort of exploded out,” filmmaker David Ayer said about his latest film. “I wrote it for me.” Ayer’s kept largely inside the domain of police films thus far (“S.W.A.T.,” “Street Kings,” “End Of Watch”), but for his next trick, he’s taking on a WWII drama starring Brad Pitt. And if you think “so what? Pitt’s already done a WWII movie with Quentin Tarantino” (“Inglourious Basterds”), note that Ayer’s “Fury” sounds vastly different. What’s the film like? In a long feature in the New York Times recently, the movie was described as a “relentlessly authentic portrayal of the extremes endured, and inflicted, by Allied troops who entered Germany in the spring of 1945.” Intriguingly, the Times also say the movie “promises to be one of the most daring studio movies in an awards season.”

Brad Pitt starrer “Fury” is to close the 58th BFI London Film Festival. Pic makes its European premiere on Oct. 19 at the Odeon Leicester Square in London.

The film was written and directed by David Ayer, whose helming credits include “End of Watch,” and whose writing credits include “Training Day” and “The Fast and the Furious.” Pic also stars Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman (“Noah”), Michael Pena (“End of Watch”) and Jon Bernthal (“The Wolf of Wall Street”).

Pitt and Ayer are confirmed to attend the closing night gala, while a cinecast from the red carpet and simultaneous screenings will take place at movie theaters across the U.K.

Pic is set in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push across Europe, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.

The movie lensed in England, in the Oxfordshire countryside and at Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire, for 12 weeks last year. It is produced by Bill Block, Ayer, Ethan Smith and John Lesher. Exec producers are Pitt, Sasha Shapiro, Anton Lessine, Alex Ott and Ben Waisbren.

Clare Stewart, festival director, said: “‘Fury’ is a resounding cinematic achievement. Rarely is a film so successful at balancing the human drama of war with such thrilling action sequences.”

Sony Pictures Releasing will release the film in U.K. cinemas on Oct. 24.

We’d heard rumors that Brad Pitt was staying in Eureka for a multi-day magazine photo shoot with iconic photographer Mark Seliger. Reddit was abuzz. But now we have our first photographic evidence. Below, feast your eyes on Mr. Jolie looking very much like himself yesterday at Eureka’s Black Lightning Motorcycle Cafe along with owners Cassandra and Jeff Hesseltine and brood (she’s also our county’s film commish, of course).

“He was pretty excited about the German pancakes,” Cassandra told LoCO of Brad’s BLMC experience.

In addition to pancake eatin’ and motorcycle gabbin’, Hesseltine accompanied Pitt and the photog crew around Humboldt for both days of shooting which took the megastar to Luffenholtz Beach and Redwood State Parks in both the northern and southern parts of the county. She was hush on where and when the photos may appear but assured us that Humboldt will look good when they are released.

“People will get to see some beautiful places,” Hesseltine said. “It’ll be really good for tourism in our area.”

Sony Pictures has moved up the release of its Brad Pitt World War II pic “Fury” from Nov. 14 to Oct. 17.

The tank drama, co-starring Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman, is directed by David Ayer and said to be an awards contender. The date change also puts “Fury” much closer to the Telluride or Toronto film festivals, which is where Pitt’s “12 Years a Slave” launched last year before going on to win big at the Oscars. So far, however, neither festival has confirmed the film.

Written by Ayer, “Fury” centers on a tank battalion, led by Pitt’s character, forced to make a last stand against the Nazis behind enemy lines.

The WWII drama takes the place of the Seth Rogen comedy “The Interview,” which was slotted to bow on Oct. 17 but recently moved to Christmas Day. Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu’s “Birdman” also opens on that date in limited release.

Angelina Jolie has given an insight into family life with Brad Pitt and their six children — and revealed how the 50-year-old actor is a pushover when it comes to their daughters.

Jolie, 39, says they follow a strict schedule to accommodate the home-schooling of Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight and twins Vivienne and Knox, six. She told Hello! magazine: “We get up at 7.30am and have breakfast, then at 8.30am we walk them over to where they’re doing their studies. We meet again at home for dinner at 6.30pm. Sometimes the kids will show up at Mommy’s office and it’s great fun.”

Of Pitt as a father, she said: “Brad’s daughters can do no wrong — Z can ask for anything and he just crumbles. And he does boy things with the boys.”

But she added: “One of the things we’re particularly conscious of is how we treat each other in front of the children. We want to be an example of how to treat the opposite sex.”

She said they had not ruled out having more children one day.

Director Tom DiCillo, who fought to cast then-unknown hunk Brad Pitt in his first star part as a rockabilly-obsessed musician in 1991’s Johnny Suede, hit the ceiling March 29 when he noticed on Netflix that eight minutes of music by Link Wray, the pioneering ’50s guitarist, was cut. It turned out that Miramax had forgone clearing the rights when it made its streaming agreement. “I was furious, but Netflix and Miramax were highly receptive to helping me,” says DiCillo.

Miramax director of servicing and delivery Ryan Sosa sorted out the rights, and DiCillo even got to re-edit the film, trimming seven minutes and a narrative voiceover that had been added by Miramax co-founder Harvey Weinstein. “It’s distilled and improves the film so much,” says DiCillo. Netflix plans to add it later in August.

“Cool!” said Weinstein when told the news. “I love that movie. I didn’t discover Brad Pitt; Tom DiCillo did.” (Actually, Ridley Scott had cast Pitt in Thelma & Louise, but it hadn’t been released yet, so Pitt’s abs were unknown when DiCillo cast him.) How does Weinstein feel about the new, VO-less Johnny Suede? “I’m looking forward to it.”

“In the end, they would hose out the blood, slap on some paint, and grab some cooks and clerks to crew up the vehicle again,” David Ayer tells Michael Cieply at the New York Times, referring to his new film Fury, which several Oscar pundits were much higher on than I was initially, but this new editorial has me singing a different tune.

As much as I loved Ayer’s End of Watch (it made my top ten in 2012), his films have never been Oscar fodder. Even Training Day, which AYer wrote and Antoine Fuqua directed, saw Denzel Washington win an Oscar and Ethan Hawke also nominated. It didn’t, however, earn a Best Picture or screenplay nomination. Add to that the dismal reaction to Ayer’s Sabotage earlier this year from critics and audiences alike (I’ve still yet to see it) and it just appears he’s a filmmaker with a touch outside the Oscar realm.

Enter Fury, starring Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, Jon Bernthal and Jason Isaacs, a World War II film centered a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Pitt) as he commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines and it sounds every bit as nasty as you’d expect.

“Piercing his brainpan with a CRACK,” is how Mr. Ayer’s screenplay describes the move. (In Dolby Digital sound, it will be a very loud crack.) Mr. Pitt, our hero, then calmly wipes his blade clean on the German’s uniform [...]

As the movie opens, they are preparing to scrape the remains of a headless buddy from the bow gunner’s seat. “I sure didn’t keep him alive,” Mr. Pitt mutters.

LOS ANGELES — In the first minutes of the writer-director David Ayer’s “Fury,” about American soldiers slogging through Europe in the final days of World War II, Brad Pitt, as the tanker Don Collier, slides his knife behind the eye of a German lieutenant.

“Piercing his brainpan with a CRACK,” is how Mr. Ayer’s screenplay describes the move. (In Dolby Digital sound, it will be a very loud crack.) Mr. Pitt, our hero, then calmly wipes his blade clean on the German’s uniform.

The Good War this is not.

In what promises to be one of the most daring studio movies in an awards season that will bring several World War II films, Mr. Ayer, Mr. Pitt and a band of producers backed by Sony Pictures Entertainment are poised to deliver what the popular culture has rarely seen. That is, a relentlessly authentic portrayal — one stuntman was run through with a bayonet on the set — of the extremes endured, and inflicted, by Allied troops who entered Germany in the spring of 1945.

Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” which also starred Mr. Pitt, was brutal but surreal. Few believed that a real-life counterpart to his blood-crazed Lt. Aldo Raine had collected Nazi scalps by the hundred.

The first 20 minutes of Steven Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan” came much closer to what Mr. Ayer calls the war’s “ground truth.” But little in its portrayal of slaughter at Normandy hinted at what some American soldiers would do less than a year later in their final push to victory — yes, they executed prisoners and killed armed children.

Mr. Ayer, a studio writer (“Training Day”) and indie film director (“End of Watch”), had been meditating for years on the “Fury” screenplay, but he wrote it in a burst about 18 months ago. “It sort of exploded out,” he said. “I wrote it for me.”

The resulting movie, Mr. Ayer said, was intended both as a personal journey and as a correction to the pop cultural record.

On the personal front, “Fury” is meant to unlock the psychology of Mr. Ayer’s older relations, who fought but seldom spoke of it. And the film trades on his own military experience as a sonar operator on an attack submarine in the 1980s.
