The film, written and being directed by Jolie, is set in France in the mid-1970s, and both actors are dressed in era-appropriate garb. Jolie, who plays a former dancer, is sporting a crème-colored frock with an avocado-hued scarf, while the mustachioed Pitt has a crisp, white dress shirt on, topped off with a stylish fedora.

Brad Pitt Returns to War in the First ‘Fury’ Poster Brad Pitt gives his best stubbly, and battle-scarred look in the first poster for his new World War II drama Fury, coming to theaters this November. The moody image, featuring ominous grey clouds and a pensive, Pitt gazing down from the turret of his tank, stands in contrast to the poster for his last WWII epic, Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, in which a defiant Pitt stood tall — his back literally to the wall — staring straight at the viewer.

I’m still getting used to the fact that Brad Pitt is now an Oscar-winning producer — one wonders whether, like Michael Douglas before him, the acting award will come later, Either way, the man’s no slouch in the off-screen department: aside from “12 Years a Slave,” the man’s production credits range from “The Departed” to “Kick-Ass” to “The Tree of Life” to the (likely Cannes-bound) HBO feature “The Normal Heart.” And now “The Operators,” to which Pitt is also attached to star as US military general Stanley McChrystal. As is often the case on his producing projects, Pitt’s taste in collaborators is pretty forward-thinking: David Michod, the Australian director of the bristling, Oscar-nominated crime drama “Animal Kingdom,” will write and direct the project. Michod’s second feature “The Rover,” a post-apocalyptic thriller starring Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, is due for release this summer, and tipped to appear in the Cannes Film Festival lineup later this week.
