Balls of Fury Synopsis

An outrageous new comedy. In this secret society, the competition is brutal and the stakes are high. It is the unsanctioned, underground, and utterly unhinged world of clandestine Ping-Pong tournaments. Down-and-out former professional Ping-Pong phenom Randy Daytona (Dan Fogler) is sucked into this maelstrom when FBI Agent Rodriguez (George Lopez) recruits him for a secret mission. Randy is determined to bounce back and win, and to smoke out his fatherís killer Ė arch-fiend Feng (Christopher Walken).



Christopher Walken returns to the self-parody that landed him the number 5 spot on our Actor Who Donít Care list in the latest lame sport makes for funny comedy movie Balls of Fury.

If you feel like youíve seen this movie before, itís because you have. It was called Dodgeball and though the balls may have been bigger the idea was a same. Take a sport that Americans feel is incredibly lame and turn it into a comedy stacked with wacky characters. Dodgeball had Alan Tudyk as an inexplicably piratical player and Balls has Thomas Lennon in another pair of way-to-short-shorts.

The film was written and directed by the guys who brought you Reno 911: Miami, which no one saw and even fewer liked. Could Balls of Fury be funny? Probably. The supporting cast is too talented for the film to fail fully. Itís the movieís lead thatís an unknown quantity, after all who the hell is Dan Fogler? More importantly, who cares? Balls of Fury will try to make you care late this summer.

As such, Ayer is also fighting against certain perceptions of war films. He's sidestepped this issue by avoiding the framing of World War II in a historical context, as Fury takes place primarily on a single day.

Anyone who's seen Quentin Tarantino's Inglorious Basterds knows that Brad Pitt contributes to a huge portion of that film's success. His casting was probably the most brilliant move on that film besides the casting of his co-star Christoph Waltz, and he's looking to tear down the Nazis yet again in his new film, Fury. And this time, he's not scalping his way through enemy territory, he's shelling them into submission!

Filming a movie takes a wealth of effort from a ton of people, from those in front of the camera to those behind it. And while special care is taken to make sure nobody gets hurt, every once in a while somebody is going to take a knife to the body (or a camera crane to the head, as was the case for Baz Luhrmann on the set of The Great Gatsby.

Is Brad Pitt going to become the next actor, after Tom Hanks, to become completely synonymous with World War II? He's already put in one memorable performance on the war-torn European front, as the scalp-wielding Lt. Aldo Raine in Inglourious Basterds, and he's currently making his way back in Fury, another Word War II drama currently shooting in London. We thought the crew joining Pitt was already set in place

Brad Pitt is heading back to World War II on behalf of David Ayer's Fury, and now he's got a young whippersnapper to go along with him.

Brad Pitt Joining End Of Watch Director For World War II Drama Fury Brad Pitt Joining End Of Watch Director For World War II Drama Fury
"It's not your father's WWII movie." That's probably been said about every World War II movie made since the mid-70s or so, with the possible exception of Saving Private Ryan. But the old chestnut is back again to describe Fury, a drama set during the global conflict that will star Brad Pitt, who was seen not too long ago killing Nat-zees in what was definitely not your father's World War II movie, Inglourious Basterds

End Of Watch's David Ayer To Write And Direct World War II Drama Fury End Of Watch's David Ayer To Write And Direct World War II Drama Fury
Last year was a career changing one for writer/director David Ayer. While the filmmaker became a talent to watch thanks to the success Training Day in 2001, his career hit a bit of a speed bump when he moved over to directing, failing to find either critical praise or an audience for cop dramas like Harsh Times and Street Kings.
