Swansea City - The Movie
Swansea City - The Movie
Monday, 24th Jun 2013 13:01

Hollywood has come to Swansea to tell the story of the Swans’ triumphant rise to the Premier League in big-hitting movie Jack To A King. Oscar and BATFA Award-winners are taking the Swansea football dream to the big screen. Made by YJB Films, the movie is currently in production.

The film is being directed by BAFTA Award-winning director Marc Evans, who says: “This is not just a film about the rise of Swansea City Football Club, but the story of a town and the people who made that club what it is today.”

Executive Producer Mal Pope: “This is a truly remarkable story of how a 'rag tag' band of builders, housewives, teachers and travel agents came together to save their football club and ended up turning their city into a worldwide brand. A story of how sometimes even the wildest dreams can come true!”

Oscar-winning co-producer James Marsh agrees: “The re-birth of a neglected, provincial football club into genuine Premier League contenders is both a romantic modern day fairytale and a gripping thriller of a story. It's a remarkable and surprising tale which will make for an irresistible, highly emotional film that will appeal to anyone who's ever rooted for the underdog.”

A spokesman for Swansea City Football Club confirmed that the film makers are being given unprecedented access to the Premier League club : “We’re thrilled to be working with YJB Films on this exciting project. It’s a real first for the football world. Swansea City’s success has really caught the attention of a global audience.”
