Hollywood came to Dorset – literally – when Hollywood A-Lister Brad Pitt came to visit.
The actor is preparing for his upcoming World War II film and part of his training itinerary is paying Tank Museum Bovington a visit to get a feel on how it is working with WWII tanks. He went on to give one tank a test drive. Rest assured, a team of experts was with him to give him instructions when he was driving the military machine on the field.
“We’ve been helping Brad Pitt with his film Fury.“There are going to be quite a lot of tanks in it,” said Roz Skellon of the Bovington Tank Museum.
Additionally, one of Bovington Tank Museum’s volunteer wardens tweeted about the event saying:
“Apparently Brad Pitt has borrowed our Shermans to make the film Fury in which he plays a tank commander in WWII.”
Brad Pitt’s new movie, set to be entitled Fury, has a production budget of over 80,000 million pounds. The said movie is scheduled to start filming in the coming weeks.
Fury is a biopic that centers on a story of a Sherman tank crew in WWII’s final weeks. Reportedly, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena, Logan Lerman and Jon Bernthal will also be in the film alongside Brad Pitt.
Its expected date of release will be on November of 2014.
Aside from the Bovington Tank Museum, the 50-year-old actor was also believed to have paid MOD the MOD shooting ranges at Lulworth Camp while he was in the country. It can be remembered that he filmed some scenes for his zombie movie, World War Z, in Dorset.
