Football biopic backed by Telegael, Film Agency Wales, Moonscoop USA, Tasty Films and Ambergreen Entertainment.

Controversial 70’s footballer Robin Friday, well known for his on and off-field antics, is to be the subject of a new biopic from UK TV producer Mike Young, creator of Super Ted.

Young is partnering on the project with author Paolo Hewitt and LA-based UK producers Marc Ambrose (Ambergreen Entertainment) and Marc Benardout and Julian Stone (Tasty Films).

Stone and Hewitt have adapted the script from Hewitt and former Oasis bassist Paul “Guigsy” McGuigan’s biography of Friday.

The project is funded by production house Telegael, Film Agency Wales and Young, with the team in talks for further investment.

Friday played football for Reading and Cardiff but was as well known for his off-field antics as his underappreciated football talent. The film will chart Friday’s widely reported excesses during the 70’s as well as his short-lived and mercurial football talent.
