Will – trailer for my cousin’s new film

In 2005 my American cousin Zack sent me a draft screenplay for a film he and his girlfriend were working on. In short, it was about a football-crazy schoolboy, Will, who travels half-way across Europe to watch the cup final in which his favourite team are playing.

Well, the film has now been made and that’s the trailer for it (above)!

I still have the two early drafts of the screenplay which Zack sent me to see if was British enough, and to enable me to do some research for the film, which was great fun to do!

Jane and I caught up with Zack last year in London just as filming was about to begin. Casting had just finished with Damien Lewis (Band of Brothers, Life, Dreamcatcher, etc.) and Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Hook, Brazil, etc.) taking lead roles.

I just heard today that the film—now called simply Will—will be screening at the Cannes Film Market (Marché du Film) this week.

Good luck Zack, we’ll be thinking of you.
