Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

MOVIE bosses be­hind the likes of Harry Pot­ter are hop­ing to fol­low up on the be­spec­ta­cled wizard’s suc­cess with a new film all about Nigel Farage.

Warner Bros, the stu­dio be­hind the likes of Ghostbusters and Man of Steel, are ru­moured to be in talks about mak­ing a film cen­tred on the for­mer UKIP leader.

Ac­cord­ing to in­sid­ers the movie would fol­low Farage’s cam­paign to get Bri­tain to leave the Euro­pean Union on 23 June last year.

Movie big­wigs are work­ing with mil­lion­aire Ar­ron Banks, who funded Leave.EU, to base the block­buster on his di­aries of the suc­cess­ful cam­paign ti­tled The Bad Boys of Brexit.

A spokesman for Mr Banks con­firmed the ru­mours: “We have had some very se­ri­ous Hollywood peo­ple in touch with us who are go­ing to buy the rights to the book. They want to buy the op­tion on it. The Bad Boys of Brexit. It’s a com­edy.”

Pro­duc­ers are ap­par­ently hop­ing to sit down with Brex­i­teer Farage when he vis­its the United States for Don­ald Trump’s in­au­gu­ra­tion as Pres­i­dent later this month.
