U-571 writer regrets "distortion"

Screenwriter David Ayer has admitted his 2000 film U-571 distorted history and that he would not do it again.

Ayer told BBC Radio 4's The Film Programme that he "did not feel good" about suggesting Americans captured the Enigma code rather than the British.

"It was a distortion... a mercenary decision to create this parallel history in order to drive the movie for an American audience," he said.
