Washington: Hollywood actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, who grew up among rugby fanatics in her native Wales, has teamed up with her brother David to produce a new comdey about a gay rugby club boss.
The film titled ‘Coming Out’ tells the story of a teenage homosexual theatre artist whose father dies and leaves him the local rugby club in his will. He has to go back home and get all fat, drinking, smoking Welsh guys into shape to win the rugby tournament.
“It was born from me and my brother David sitting around reminiscing about Wales. It’s about this guy who is in musical theatre, who is from a little town in Wales and he goes to London, like I did, to pursue musical theatre as a teenager and he’s gay,” Contactmusic quoted Zeta-Jones as saying.
The movie will be produced by David’s movie studio Initial Entertainment, and Zeta-Jones admitted that she was struggling to get the project off the ground.
“It’s hard to get the financing because I’m not starring in it. I just have a cameo role in it,” she said.
