We’ve been looking forward to this one. Swimming With Men is a new comedy headlined by Rob Brydon. In it, he plays Eric, an accountant having something of a mid-life crisis. How does he handle it? Glad you asked. He joins an all-male synchronised swimming team. As you do.
The film co-stars Jane Horrocks, Rupert Graves, Adeel Akhtar, Jim Carter, Thomas Turgoose, Daniel Mays and Charlotte Riley, and over the course of the film, the lives of the swimmers and the battles they’re up against are expected to come to light. We’re expecting hearty chuckles, too.
Aschlin Ditta has penned the screenplay for the movie, which has been directed by Oliver Parker (the two recent-ish St Trinians movies, Dad’s Army). What’s more, we’ve finally got a release date for it. Having been acquired by Veritgo for release in the UK in a deal earlier this year, the movie now has a big summer release date: July 6th 2018.
Expect a trailer soon, and we’ll keep you posted as we hear more…
