Press Release Launch 30.09.11

Bedlam Productions/Takedown Pictures



Bedlam Productions, producers of the acclaimed feature film “The King’s Speech”, announced today their new project “The Grudge”. A dramatic telling of the infamous 1990 Five Nations Grand Slam rugby match between Scotland and England. The project is based on the 2010 book by the respected Irish sports journalist Tom English, and tells the story of one of the greatest grudge matches in the history of the sport.

Evan Leighton-Davis of Takedown Pictures introduced the project to Bedlam, and will act as Producer on the film alongside Simon Egan , who is also attached to direct, under the Bedlam banner.

Set against the backdrop of Thatcherism, civil unrest in Scotland and a divide that threatened to overshadow the game, the story dramatises how the hard grind tactics of Scotland coaches Jim Telfer and Ian McGeechan overcame a rampant England team boasting the likes of Will Carling, Brian Moore and Jeremy Guscott.
