New Fury Promo

Chuck Palahniuk is breaking the first two rules of Fight Club: He’s talking about Fight Club.

The author’s devotees probably won’t mind since what’s on his mind these days is more of the characters and world he created in his 1996 book, which was adapted three years later into director David Fincher’s cult film starring Edward Norton and Brad Pitt.

The story of an unnamed insomniac narrator, his violent id come to life in the form of Tyler Durden, and an underground society built on bare-knuckle brawls and anarchic ideas continues in Fight Club 2, a 10-issue Dark Horse Comics maxiseries illustrated by Cameron Stewart, debuting in May 2015.

Palahniuk will be on a Fight Club panel with Fincher on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, but it was at last year’s New York Comic Con where the author’s loose lips cemented the project.

“I messed up and said I was doing the sequel in front of 1,500 geeks with telephones,” Palahniuk says. “Suddenly, there was this big scramble to honor my word.”

Fight Club 2 takes place alternately in the future and the past. It picks up a decade after the ending of his original book, where the protagonist is married to equally problematic Marla Singer and has a 9-year-old son named Junior, though the narrator is failing his son in the same way his dad failed him.

There may have been some controversy surrounding the release of MR. AND MRS. SMITH, as the chemistry between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie was undeniable. They’ve moved on to other projects since but I suppose it was only a matter of time before the two were brought together again in hopes of striking that sickly sweet box office gold a second time. For round 2, it looks to be under the guiding hand of Angelina Jolie herself.

Angelina Jolie first tried her hand at directing in 2011 with IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY. While that project didn’t garner too much praise, her sophomore effort, UNBROKEN, recently showcased a trailer that has quite a few people talking. At the very least, it looks to be an inspiring story about a real life hero. Details are pretty slim on Jolie’s third film, BY THE SEA, except that it will also be written by her, star her and her beau, and is a character-driven drama.

Actress Julia Ormond chatted with HuffPost Live host Ricky Camilleri on Thursday, July 17, about her role in the 1995 classic, “Legends of the Fall” — you know, that film she co-starred in with a blossoming Brad Pitt, the esteemed Anthony Hopkins and “E.T.” star Henry Thomas. (Oh, Aidan Quinn was in it too).

In the movie, Ormond played Susannah Fincannon, a young woman who comes to Col. William Ludlow’s (Hopkins) remote house in Montana in the early 1900s, engaged to his youngest son Samuel (Thomas). After the war makes things more difficult though, Susannah ends up falling for Samuel’s brother Tristan (Pitt) while his other brother Alfred (Quinn) falls for her. Talk about a love trapezoid!

As for working with Pitt on the film, Ormond, now 49, said that although it was apparent producers wanted him to be the next big Hollywood heartthrob, he was resistant.

“Brad is a really good actor, he’s very intuitive,” she said. “He always kind of reminded me on set of like a racehorse that won’t run — he stays in the box when the box is open … If it doesn’t feel right to him [he won’t do it].”

TORONTO – Brad Pitt is no longer involved, but Vancouver-raised novelist Tom Rachman still has a screen deal for his smash debut effort, “The Imperfectionists.”

Pitt’s production company, Plan B, optioned the rights to the critically heralded story about a group of journalists when it became an international bestseller and made the Scotiabank Giller Prize long list in 2010.

Now, as Rachman promotes his equally raved-about second book, “The Rise and Fall of Great Powers,” he says Pitt’s company wrote a screenplay for the first novel but “decided it didn’t work as a film.”

“The script that they did, they cut it down to three characters essentially out of all of them, so it just didn’t really have enough of the original in it and so it didn’t go forward,” the 39-year-old said in an interview.

So goes the actual motto used by the real-life American heroes that inspired writer/director David Ayer’s latest, the World War II action-thriller Fury, starring Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal as the five-man crew of a Sherman tank that, in the course of a single day, moves across Germany at the tail-end of the war.

“Both of my grandparents were in World War II and retired as officers,” says Ayer, who himself served more recently in the US Navy. “One fought in the Pacific and one fought in Europe. The whole family was in the war. I grew up exposed to it and hearing the stories, but the stories I heard weren’t kind of the whole ‘Rah, rah, rah! We saved the world!’ They were about the personal price and the emotional price. The pain and the loss are the shadows that sort of stalk my family. That was something that I wanted to communicate with people. Even though it was literally a fight of good against evil and it had an incredibly positive outcome, the individual man fighting it was just as tired, scared and freaked out as a guy operating a base in Afghanistan or a guy in the jungle in Vietnam.”

ComingSoon.net had the chance to visit the production last year in England’s Oxfordshire countryside, where Ayer did everything in his power to make the world of the film as true to life as possible, down to the film’s title star. In the scene being filmed, “Fury,” (the name given to the tank itself) joined four other Sherman Tanks, all actual period vehicles on loan from both private collectors and the Bovington Tank Museum that feature names like “Lucy Sue,” “Sting,” “Old Phyllis” and “Murder, Inc.” They’re all rendezvousing with Jason Isaac’s Captain Wagner to receive new orders.

Described as a “character study with action sequences” in the sizzle reel that dropped earlier this month, David Ayer’s WWII tank pic “Fury” seems to be rolling toward awards season contention. But it would appear that the film needs a few more tweaks before it can hit theatres.

Showbiz 411 reports that starting next week, “Fury” will undergo reshoots with casting underway for two actors to play SS officers. Now, Roger Friedman is taking the alarmist view and making suggestions that this could mean problems with the film. Perhaps. But what’s often forgotten is that some films actually put reshoots into their schedule, and that could be the case here. Or maybe it’s just an extra scene to add needed context. Either way, with shooting set for Los Angeles, it would appear that it’s not major setpieces that need to be done, perhaps more fine tuning. And it’s not even clear if star Brad Pitt himself will be part of them.

So the short version? “Fury” is going to be shooting some new stuff starting week. Whether or not it affects the November 14th release date for the movie, we’ll just have to wait and see.
