David Tennant: project news and updates

Leith, camera, action: Proclaimers musical to become a film
Sunshine on Leith, the hit musical based on The Proclaimers’ songs, is to be turned into a film with David Tennant and Billy Connolly tipped for key roles.

A huge song and dance routine will be filmed on Calton Hill in Edinburgh this autumn, with as many as 1,000 extras taking part.

Former Doctor Who star Tennant has already expressed his interest in the role, and it is understood producers are keen to draft in Annie Lennox and the “Big Yin.”
Tennant is a huge fan of the band, highlighting them in an appearance on Desert Island Discs.

Though casting has yet to take place, it is hoped the film will debut at the Edinburgh film festival next year.
