Brad Pitt And Shia LaBeouf Get Tanked Onset Of Fury!

Filed under: Brad PittFilm FlickersShia LaBeouf

We just cannot shake the thought of Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf fitting both of themselves into the same hole. Sure, it's just the hatch of a tank, but still we're saluting at half mast!

Brad and Shia got cozy inside the hull of a tank onset of Fury today! Hopefully, the armored vehicle didn't turn out to be a Decepticon, for Shia's sake!

The movie has the pair playing tank crew members during the end of World War Z II, fighting Zombies Nazis!

It must be nice for the two actors, who are currently in London, to take a break from being in El Lay!

If they filmed this flick on the west coast, they would have to constantly check for street cleaning signs, and worry about parallel parking a tracked, armored fighting vehicle!

amy adams joins scientology film

They should get Tom Cruise next! He WAS in PT Anderson's film Magnolia. LOLz.

Okay, so Tom is probs not going to do this film or any film with Paul Thomas Anderson ever again, but we're pleased to report that Amy Adams is set to star in PTA's Scientology film!

Adams will star as the wife of Philip Seymour Hoffman's character, who has been described as "a man who returns from witnessing the horrors of WWII, and in an attempt to find himself, he forms a belief system that catches on in the 1950s."

Joaquin Phoenix has also been attached to the film as Hoffman's "right-hand man." Other actors in talks for the film include The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo's Lena Endra and Laura Dern.

As we said before, this sounds like a very inneresting film, and we're excited to see Amy Adams on board! We know she'll be wonderful!

Are U excited to for PT Anderson's Scientology film? Do U think Amy is a good fit for her role?

R.I.P.

She's pretty iconic and until today, we didn't even know her name.

The nurse famously photographed in the VJ Day picture being kissed in New York's Times Square when World War II ended, died this week at the age of 91.

Edith Shain passed at her home in El Lay on Sunday and leaves behind three sons, six grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

Sad, but at least she could say she live a full and happy life. Plus, there is a little piece of her that will forever live on in history, which should be really cool for all those grand kids of hers.

Our condolences to her family.

A private collector is putting up a very rare WWII artifact up for sale today:

An original copy of Oskar Schindler's list!

It is the only privately owned, genuine draft of Schindler's list of Jewish people he helped save from the Nazis and it can be yours for the price of $2.2 million.

The anonymous owner is having Gary Zimet sell the 13-page list of 801 names, who told the press that the list is "arguably the most important World War II document" available for purchase. Gary is selling the list through his Web site, MomentsInTime.com, on a "first come, first served" basis.

History buffs will sure want to get their hands on this one! Just hope they can afford it!
