Funnyman Will Ferrell sets his sights on Eurovision
JUST when you thought Eurovision couldn’t get any more bonkers… along comes Hollywood comic Will Ferrell to shake things up.
The 50-year-old star of Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy has teamed up with Netflix to create Eurovision, a movie based on the annual singing cheese-fest.
Plans for the film are still in the early stages, and details about the plot and Will’s role have not yet emerged. He was spotted in the audience at this year’s extravaganza in Portugal, having been introduced to the contest through his wife Viveca, who is Swedish.
It has been confirmed that Will is set to produce the project through his Gary Sanchez company, and he is penning the script in partnership with Saturday Night Live writer Andrew Steele.
