By Daily Mail Reporter PUBLISHED:25 July 2013
As one of he world’s most famous actors,Brad Pitt has certainly had his pick of the best film roles.
And now Brad Pitt is once again succeeding in fulfilling another dream… by learning to drive a tank.
The father-of-six is currently mastering the mechanisms of the military machine for his role as an American soldier in World War Two drama Fury.
Tank training had been arranged by producers for Brad and the other cast members so the battle scenes will be as realistic as possible on screen.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ‘These boot camps will involve hardcore physical exercise as well as advanced tank driving.’
Bosses got the idea for the tank training from Steven Spielberg who did the same thing when he shot his epic military movie Saving Private Ryan.
The lessons have been taking place in Wiltshire, South West England, and Germany.
News of the tank training came as images emerged of Brad meeting up with U.S. soldiers while properly researching his role.
The 49-year-old actor wore khaki trousers, a blue shirt, baseball cap and boots as he posed up with the servicemen at the Fort Irwin National Training Center in Fort Irwin, California, last month.
The film centres on a Sherman tank commander – played by Brad – and his crew who find themselves behind enemy lines in Nazi Germany in April 1945 just as the war is coming to an end.
Shooting on the picture is due to begin in September this year, and a release date has been slated for November 2014.
