It’s Paul Potts: The Movie! James Corden plays the man who went from Welsh mobile phone salesman to Britain’s Got Talent winner thanks to his incredible voice. And if this trailer is anything to go by, it’s not going to let up on any sentimentality it can wring from the tale.
David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada, Marley & Me) directs, with Corden joined by the likes of Julie Walters, Colm Meaney and Mackenzie Crook. Simon Cowell is also going to appear as himself (he’s got his producer hat on for the movie too.
Expect it in cinemas this October.
