Exclusive : Bettany, Goode set for watery war tale Destroyer
Clint

Paul Bettany and Matthew Goode have come aboard writer/director Tom Shankland’s Naval carrier actioner “Destroyer”.

Set on a Battleship, the film tells the true story of Navy Captain David Hart Dyke and his crew as they’re led into the tense, unpredictable path of war. Nineteen men lost their lives when the Portsmouth-based destroyer was attacked by Argentine aircraft on May 25, 1982.

The film, based on Dyke’s memoirs, will chronicle the amazing, heart-wrenching tale of just one of the forty ships on patrol in the Falklands at the time.

Bettany (“Priest”, “A Beautiful Mind”) and Goode (“Burning Man”, “Watchmen”) will lead an immerse soon-to-be announced ensemble, we’re told.

The Ealing Metro (“Nina”, “The Guard”) production, shepherded by producers Robin Gutch and Angus Lamont, is expected to get underway next year.

Thanks to ‘Martin’
