Fury script
Fury (2014)
Synopsis: In April 1945, the Allies are making their final push in the European theater. A battle-hardened Army sergeant named Don "Wardaddy" Collier (Brad Pitt), leading a Sherman tank and a five-man crew, undertakes a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Hopelessly outnumbered, outgunned and saddled with an inexperienced soldier (Logan Lerman) in their midst, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds as they move to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.

OVER A BLACK SCREEN:

April 1945 -- The Allied Armies strike at the heart of

Germany. In four weeks the Third Reich will be no more...

1 EXT. FARMER'S FIELD - PREDAWN 1

Thick morning fog blankets all. A faint glow in the East.

It's quiet save for the DISTANT RUMBLE of artillery.

Super title:
Somewhere in Nazi Germany...

A Spanish Arabian STALLION emerges from the fog. A wasp

waisted German Army LIEUTENANT erect in its saddle. His

disciplined horse elegantly picks its way over the furrowed

soil. A dark hulk looms in the mist -- Horse and rider

approach...

IT'S A BURNED OUT TANK -- An American Sherman. Still

smoldering. Steel armor ripped open like tin foil.

The Lieutenant moves on. Encounters another charred tank.

Its entire turret blown off. A small fire still burns

inside. Around it are the blackened twisted shapes of burnt

shrunken men.

He moves on. Another hulk emerges from the mist --This tank

looks like a scrap heap -- Sandbags, railroad ties, sloppy

steel plate, cases of wine, rations and ammunition.

Battered, scarred and seemingly abandoned.

The Lieutenant guides his horse in a slow circle around the

armored vehicle. He HEARS a faint CLINK -- And draws his

Luger from its shiny black holster -- THEN:

An AMERICAN SOLDIER hiding BEHIND THE TURRET leaps on him...

Tearing the German from his horse. The two men CRASH to the

ground. The American stabs the Lieutenant in the face --

THWICK-THWICK-THWICK! Fast, violent, shocking...

The American then carefully slides the knife blade behind the

German's eye -- Piercing his brainpan with a CRACK. The

German convulses for a moment. And dies...

The American retrieves his knife. Wipes it clean on the

German's uniform and scans the area with burning primal eyes.

This is DON "WARDADDY" COLLIER. Late twenties he looks

middle aged. A light beard and hollow cheeks. Years of

combat have ground him into something hard and sharp.

With the mechanical clumsiness of exhaustion, Wardaddy cuts

the mapcase from the German's belt. Then rips the large

Knight's Cross medal from the dead man's neck.

Wardaddy stands to his full impressive height in his oil

blackened overalls. He crosses to the horse. He grabs the

beautiful animal's bridal and looks at it for a moment...

Eye to eye. Connecting with the animal. With incredible

gentleness he rubs its muzzle. And kisses it...

Then he pulls his knife -- The horse jerks back, but Wardaddy

holds it firm. He knows horses...

THWICK! -- He cuts off the bridle, slips the bit from its

mouth. He unbuckles the saddle and drops it to the soil.

Wardaddy looking at the horse. Then it heads back the way it

came -- Now without rider and tack...

Wardaddy climbs aboard his tank --Her name is "FURY" -- It's

painted on her cannon...

2 INT. FURY - PREDAWN 2

Dark. Cramped. Crowded. A filthy machine with filthy men.

There's two main areas --THE TURRET BASKET -- A big

cylindrical cage that spins with the turret.

And the BOW -- The front of the tank where the driver and a

machine gunner sit. The sound of piss hitting tin...

BOYD "BIBLE" SWAN is draped casually across the cannon

breech. A pastor's kid from Des Moines, he's serious, calm,

centered. You'd never guess he's killed a thousand men. He

finishes urinating into an ammo can.

TRINI "GORDO" GARCIA sits in the driver's seat sipping wine

from a bottle. A Mexican butcher from Chicago. He's been

drunk since 1942. He once went into combat sober -- And

vowed never to do it again.
