Scott Eastwood, the son of Clint Eastwood, will join Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf in David Ayer's World War II epic, 'Fury'

Scott Eastwood has been cast alongside Brad Pitt in World War II epic 'Fury'.

The young actor - who is the son of legendary actor-and-director Clint Eastwood - is the latest addition to the David Ayer-directed war film, which will also star Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman, according to 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.

Eastwood has been cast in the role of Sergeant Miles, while Lerman will play a young, inexperienced crew member, Normal Ellison, who is thrown into the role of being a tank gunner.

Other stars cast in the movie include 'The Walking Dead' actor Jon Bernthal and Michael Pena.

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

Eastwood has previously had roles in his father's films, 'Invictus', 'Gran Torino' and 'Flags of Our Fathers'.

The young prodigy recently wrapped filming on two independent movies, 'Dawn Patrol' and 'Walk of Fame', as well as a two-episode stint on TV drama 'Chicago Fire'.

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.
