It has been reported that former Harry Potter baddie Tom Felton is set to appear on the big screen, playing former Pop Idol winner Will Young, in the movie about his life.
The Will Young movie will centre around the singers bid for music success, seeing him trying out for other television talent shows, before making it big with Pop Idol. It will also deal with Will Young’s coming out as being gay and how that affected his life and his career.
A number of Hollywood stars were interested in playing Will Young in the movie about his life but Tom Felton managed to be victorious. It is believed that Tom Felton was cast, as he has a very similar look to Will Young and also has a fantastic singing voice, even having that famous Will Young quiver.
Early reports claim that both Gareth Gates and Simon Cowell have signed up to play cameo roles as themselves, while other stars in the industry are being asked to sign up for the project. The Will Young movie will be directed by Danny Boyle, with production set to begin later in the year and a release date planned for 2014.
