MUD, GLORIOUS MUD !   As a part of the epic  David Ayer  directed “ Fury ”, Nick played a part next to  Scott Eastwood  and  Brad Pitt  on the tank which the film was named after. More mud and guts than you can ever imagine!  It's experience like this that makes Nick a distinctive filmmaker, as well as someone who isn't afraid to get his hands dirty, even if he is leading the parade.  War films have been a big part of Nick's journey and it's no surprise his anthology series is based around the war genre.
