Movie superstar Mel Gibson is set to star in a modernised version of British historical hero ADMIRAL LORD NELSON's life.

The filming of BLIND EYE will feature a ROYAL NAVY aircraft carrier used on the frontline of Britain's defence of the Falkland Islands in 1982.

But the ship won't be cheap - hiring it will cost the filmmakers $40,000 (GBP25,000).
