Logan Lerman has joined Brad Pitt in 'The Fury'.

The 'Perks of Being a Wallflower' star will join a growing cast that includes Pitt and Shia LaBeouf in the World War II thriller directed by David Ayer, reports Deadline.

The Sony Pictures production is the true story of an army commander - to be played by Pitt - and his crew members who go behind enemy lines in their tank just as Nazi Germany collapses at the end of the war in 1945.

Lerman will play young and inexperienced crew member Norman Ellison, who is thrown into the role of being a tank gunner.

Writer-and-director Ayer is helming the picture based on his own script.

Lerman will next be seen in young adult action adventure flick, 'Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters', a sequel to 2009's 'Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief'.

Meanwhile, Pitt will next be seen in another war film - the postapocalyptic action movie 'World War Z', which is in cinemas this summer.

'The Fury' - which has a rumoured budget of $80 million - is expected to begin filming later this year.

The tale of a Sherman tank crew, led by Sgt Don 'Wardaddy' Collier (Pitt), in the final weeks of WW II. Grim and intense (heads and limbs blown off, bodies crushed under tanks) but in one of his finest performances, Pitt shows the humanity beneath the gung-ho façade; Lerman is also impressive as the rookie.
