Pierce Brosnan Joins Ferrell and McAdams in Eurovision

-

Netflix has announced that Pierce Brosnan is joining Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams in Eurovision, to be directed by David Dobkin (Wedding CrashersThe Judge).

Ferrell and McAdams will play aspiring Icelandic musicians Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdottir, while Brosnan will star as Erick Erickssong, Lars’ father and the most handsome man in Iceland.

Eurovision is a comedy set around the “The Eurovision Song Contest,” the longest-running annual international TV song competition. In the movie, when aspiring musicians Lars and Sigrit are given the opportunity of a lifetime to represent their country at the world’s biggest song competition, they finally have a chance to prove that any dream worth having is a dream worth fighting for.

The 64th edition of the competition had its finale in Tel Aviv, Israel in May this year. The winner was The Netherlands with the song “Arcade,” performed by Duncan Laurence. The first contest was held in Switzerland in 1956 with seven West European nations participating. This year 41 countries competed for the prize and the show is now a global phenomenon with fans all over the world.

Former contestants ABBA (winner in 1974 for Sweden) and Céline Dion (winner in 1988 for Switzerland) launched successful worldwide careers after their wins at “The Eurovision Song Contest.”

Will Ferrell wrote the script with Andrew Steele. The producers are Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Chris Henchy from Gary Sanchez Productions. Adam McKay is executive producing.

The film is currently in production in the UK and Iceland.
