Keith Lemon film in the works

‘Celebrity Juice’ funnyman headed to the big screen

Ever thought Leigh Francis’ alter-ego Keith Lemon would make for an enticing film project?

Well, apparently you’d be right as Lionsgate have announced their involvement in Keith Lemon: The Film, which will see the self-named ‘international ladies man’ follow his dreams to become a successful entrepreneur.  

Francis, who found fame through Channel 4 cult comedy Bo! Selecta, is penning the script, whilst Paul Angunewela is directing the antics.

Austin Powers actor and regular Celebrity Juice panellist Verne Troyer will co-star.

Zygo Kamasa, CEO of Lionsgate UK is quoted as saying “Keith Lemon is someone that everyone in the UK wants to be or wants to be with; making this film will prove to be an absolute rollercoaster of a ride”.

Tongue firmly in cheek for this one, then.

Are you excited to hear Keith Lemon's making the jump from small to big screen? Let us know!

      Perhaps I've missed a meeting somewhere along the way but I really don't find Keith Lemon stuff funny. I think there must be something wrong with me though because plenty of people seem to love the turgid guff. Can somebody please explain to me what it is that I don't get? The point that I am missing?

      This clearly illustrates that there is no God.
