The story of Japan’s famous win over South Africa in Brighton at the 2015 World Cup is to be made into a movie. StarWars actor Temuera Morrison is set to play Eddie Jones in the film, which has a working title of ‘The Brighton Miracle’.
Jones coached Japan to that shock 34-32 victory against the Springboks before taking over as England boss a few months later.
Filming is due to start in January and director Max Mannix said: “What Eddie Jones and his team did in
2015 was truly magnificent and worthy of being remembered.”
