Fury - More Action Due to Reshoots
While extensive reshoots are normally used to fix massive problems that become apparent during the post-production stage, there are some cases in which the studio shells out some more money in order to increase the number of good things. That is what happened to David Ayer's war movie Fury. As he tells in an interview with Collider, he and his crew received some more cash to shoot additional action scenes.
Ayer: Yeah, it’s additional photography. I’m just banging away some more action stuff. Let’s put it this way. Sony loved the movie and they’re like, “What do you want?” I said, “More action!” They were like, “Here you go!” So I’m going to go blow some stuff up!
Whether this is indeed just a little gift from the studio because they want the audience to enjoy some more explosions and thus earn more at the box office or whether there was just not enough action present might be information that could never see the light of day.
The war movie starring Brad Pitt as a tank commander takes place at a single day at the end of WWII when the American army was already deep behind the German borders. It starts in cinemas on November 14th, 2014. The UK will have to wait until October 24th, 2014.
