Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards – The Moving Picture

Is it a bird? 

Steve Coogan, off-of the telly and those films no-one went to see, is to play Eddie t’Eagle off-of lame skiing fame.

Shooting on the filmic device will begin in January in London’s glittering Britain and Calgary – the Canadian city where Edwards took last place in the jumping one in the 1988 Winter Olympics.

‘Although he never brought home a medal, he succeeded on a very personal, human level,’ says Coogie.

‘He may not have impressed the Olympic judges, but he won the hearts of people round the world.’
