Sony Pictures has won the coveted distribution rights to Fury, the David Ayer World War II tank movie with Brad Pitt attached to star, setting a Nov. 14, 2014, release date.

The project hails from QED, which wanted to cement its relationship with Ayer after working with the filmmaker on Ten, the Arnold Schwarzenegger crime thriller that is due out early next year.

Pitt came on board last week and his involvement sent the project’s hotness meter soaring.

Fury is set in the waning days of World War II’s European theater and revolves around the five-man crew of an American tank named Fury that runs across a desperate German division. Pitt will play a battle-hardened sergeant named Wardaddy.
