Simon Cowell is planning “Pudsey: The Movie,” a feature film about last year’s “Britain’s Got Talent” winner Pudsey the dog. The feature will star the trick-performing dog and his owner Ashleigh Butler.
This is hardly the first time “Britain’s Got Talent” winners have hit the big screen – previous victors Diversity and George Sampson starred in box-office hit “Street Dance 3D,” while James Corden is playing tenor Paul Potts in the currently in post-production film “One Chance.”
Vertigo Films, who is producing “One Chance,” will co-produce the Pudsey movie with Cowell’s Syco company. Filming will begin in the spring in time for a Christmas release.
