The star of the show at Bovington Tank Museum is set to give a Holywood A-lister a run for his money on screen.

The Tiger 131 Tank which is the only one of its kind in the world still in working order will feature in a new war film called Fury with Brad Pitt.

The Tiger 131 will come to blows with the Hollywood stars, when the crew find themselves behind German lines during the Second World War. Also starring in the film is the Museum's Sherman M4E8 which will play the home of the American tank unit.

The museum says the tank should be back on show before Christmas.

Curator David Willey says, "The Tiger was restored so that the public could fully appreciate what a truly fearsome machine it would have been during battle and now for the first time countless numbers of people will have the opportunity to see a genuine Tiger in a contemporary war film".
