Robin Friday Biopic On The Way

A biopic of 1970’s English pro-soccer player Robin Friday is in the works at Telegael and Film Agency Wales says Variety.

Julian Stone and Paolo Hewitt adapted the script for the film, entitled “The Greatest Footballer You Never Saw”, from the 1997 biography by Oasis band member Paul McGuigan.

Friday became a cult hero for working-class fans as an icon who refused to take life seriously and who lived every moment as if it were his last. He retired in 1977 and died in 1990 at the age of 38.

“SuperTed” creator Mike Young will produce.
