Director David Ayer with Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf on the set of Columbia Pictures' FURY.
Meet the real driving force behind Brad Pitt's new Second World War blockbuster, Fury.
Tank mechanics Brian Frost, 39, and Ian 'Buzz' Aldridge, 53, were hired to drive the famous Sherman tank the movie is named after for most of the major scenes.
The pair, who work at Bovington Tank Museum in Dorset, spent six months taking it in turns to operate the 26 ton tank in front of the cameras.
Although the two never appear in the movie, every time 'Fury' is seen in motion and without actor Michael Pena in the driving seat,
Brian or Buzz are at the controls.
The pair also trained actor Pena the basics of driving the Sherrman tank to give the close-up shots of his character Corporal Trini 'Gordo' Garcia more legitimacy.
The museum lent the movie's producers their M4 Sherman tank to act as Fury as well as the services of Brian and Buzz.
