David Ayer has apologised for filming war scenes on Remembrance Sunday.
Ayer sent out his "heartfelt apologies for any disrespect caused" in a statement.
Parish council chairman Ian Hill had previously said that "local people were very angry" with the decision to film on Sunday (November 10).
The filmmakers allegedly rejected calls to suspend filming in the area on Sunday, according to The Mirror.
Shadow defence minister Kevan Jones said: "I'm astonished producers would not consider it to be inappropriate to film such scenes on Remembrance Sunday.
"It is outrageous appeals from locals to reconsider plans to film on such an occasion were ignored."
My heartfelt apologies for any disrespect on Remembrance Day. I am a veteran myself. It is an honour to film here in the UK.
