Dramatic scenes have been filmed of the last Type 42 destroyer at sea as part of a movie charting the sinking of HMS Coventry.
Producers working on the film Destroyer filmed Coventry’s sister ship HMS Edinburgh cutting through the water and performing tight turns.
Edinburgh will be used as a substitute for Coventry and although both ships look near identical, the footage will be digitally-altered to iron out any differences, such as the pennant number and the position of aerials and other equipment.
Destroyer tells the story of HMS Coventry and its 300 crew in the weeks leading up to her sinking in the Falklands War in 1982.
Nineteen sailors died and 30 were injured when the ship was bombed by Argentine planes.
The film is based on the memoirs of the captain David Hart-Dyke and is being directed by Bafta-nominated film-maker Tom Shankland, who wrote the script.
British actor Paul Bettany, who starred in A Beautiful Mind, Master & Commander and The Da Vinci Code, will play Mr Hart-Dyke.
Former petty officer Chris Howe, chairman of the HMS Coventry Association, is a consultant on the movie, much of which will be filmed at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, and on location in Malta.
He said: “The last time I spoke to Tom Shankland the script has now been approved by the captain and they have got most of the funding.
“There’s a little bit of elusive funding they need.
“It’s not a 100 per cent goer yet, but the likelihood of it happening is greater now than ever. It’s very positive.
“They did some shots of HMS Edinburgh performing dramatic tight turns in open water, and they are going to have to do a lot of CGI.”
Chris said Shankland was currently working on the new series of Ripper Street while Bettany had been working on a project with Johnny Depp.
He added that there had been “a lot of overseas interest” in the film, including Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
In the days leading up to her sinking, HMS Coventry shot down or hit several enemy aircraft, but during a raid by Argentinian Skyhawks, she was hit by three bombs, causing her to list and sink.
Royal Navy divers later recovered a cross of nails, originally presented by Coventry Cathedral, which was then given to the replacement HMS Coventry, and now HMS Diamond.
Destroyer will be the first theatrical feature based on the Falklands War for more than 20 years.
In 1989 David Thewlis starred in Resurrected and Colin Firth starred in the 1988 TV film Tumbledown.
