Bruno The Movie
The adrenaline of Rocky, mixed with the heart of The Theory of Everything… ‘Bruno’ is a biopic to rival all others…. Get involved with the official Frank Bruno Movie on Kickstarter.
Frank’s life is a storied one. He started boxing at the age of 11, and won the Amateur Boxing Championship at the tender age of 18… He was at the height of his career when the world’s eyes were on the ring. He fought Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and beat Oliver McCall for the WBC Heavyweight Championship of the World.
It is perhaps the fight outside of the ring that has been his hardest battle and that is his battle with mental illness. In 2003 Frank was sectioned for the first time and diagnosed with Bipolar. Since then he has had to battle with his own mind, and it is a battle he is winning.
This film charts it all; from the very first time he put on his gloves, his World Title win, his section and everything in between. This feature film biopic looks at the rise, fall, and rise again of one of Britain’s most loved sports stars and personalities. Focusing on the day he was first sectioned, we will look back over his life and fall in love with him all over again…
Update from Franks Office 8/11/16
We launched Kickstarter as we were advised this was a great way to raise funds and for the general public a chance to get involved in the Frank Bruno movie.
It would be fair to say this has been a brilliant Public relations awareness campaign and it has generated interest from a number of potential film makers large and small along with some serious investors.
Concerning raising money Kick starter has not worked for us. We understand if it had been a project of a few thousand pounds requirement then it would have worked. Sadly a film costs a lot more than that. Kickstarter was always going to be working alongside private investment. We thank the members of the public who have made pledges. Frank Bruno the movie is still very much going to happen but we now start the journey talking to the film companies and private investors.
If any film company or private investor is interested in getting involved please email firstname.lastname@example.org
