Brad Weston and American Idol's Simon Cowell are going to be producing this project about British reality star Paul Potts. Writing the script is Justin Zackham The Bucket List. Mike Menchel is also producing this project.
Potts, an amateur opera singer, became instantly famous when he first surfaced on Britain's Got Talent. Menchel's daughter actually discovered Potts when she "watched a YouTube video of the everyman hero."
Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass) is going to be helping to finance this project.
Paramount hopes to start shooting the film early this year. The goal is to shoot the film and have it coincide with the upcoming season of Britain's Got Talent.
One Chance will start casting soon.
