Fisherman's Friends - Fisherman's Friends Movie In The Works

The story of British sea shanty group Fisherman's Friends is to be brought to the big screen by Calendar Girls director Nigel Cole.

The singers landed a major recording deal in 2010 after they were discovered at a pub in England, and they are poised to release their second album next month (Aug13).

However, their story took a tragic twist when bandmember Trevor Grills and tour manager Paul MCMullen were killed in a freak accident involving a steel door at a gig venue in February (13).

It has now emerged the group will be the focus of a new film by acclaimed director Cole, who insists he is "very much looking forward (to making) a truly British movie".

Auditions to cast the roles of the singers will begin later this year (13), according to the Bbc.
