“We all wanted love,” said Pitt’s co-star Shia LaBeouf, “He was parenting everyone. He was the father of the tank.”
The cast and director of “Fury” sat down with ABC’s David Muir for a new interview airing Friday on ABC’s “World News Tonight” and revealed the chain of command that formed while filming the project.
“Fury” tells the story of a group of Allied soldiers outnumbered by Nazis on the frontlines of battle in Germany. LaBeouf told Muir his involvement in the film left him humbled.
“It’s been the most rewarding job I’ve ever had in my life,” LaBeouf said.
Director David Ayer‘s goal was to make this movie authentically raw while still respecting the soldiers who put their lives on the line in the fight for freedom.
“I just wanted to paint an accurate picture,” Ayer said, “not just of say uniforms and weapons and vehicles, but an accurate picture of these men and to show how truly difficult their task was.”
Muir also asked Pitt about his August nuptials to Angelina Jolie and how the couple put off their wedding for so long to send a message of marriage equality.
“That’s just a no-brainer, to me,” Pitt said. “That’s the basis of our country. You know, equality for everyone.”
