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.
