Eurovision – The Movie!

Posted by Caroline on May 15, 2007

Well, we suppose it was only a matter of time before someone decided to make a Eurovision movie – and now it’s about to happen. According to reports, Borat screenwriter Dan Mazer and History Boys producer Damian Jones have struck a deal with UK giants Working Title (the people behind Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’ Diary and countless other hits) to make a movie based on the contest.

There’s no word yet on when the project, provisionally titled Eurovision: The Movie, will hit cinemas, or even who’s likely to star. So given that Team Eurovision has been saying for ages that a Eurovision-themed film would be a really good idea (which is another way of saying ‘we had that idea years ago but we never got to make it because we’re not big shot film producers who hang out with celebrities’) we thought it would be nice to offer them a little help. In other words, if Mazer and Jones are looking for inspiration for their own Eurovision project, perhaps one of these plots might prove useful:

1) A delightful comedy in which the blossoming romance between two Eurovision hopefuls, one from Estonia, the other from the UK, is dashed when the former are eliminated in the semi-final. Featuring Hugh Grant as a bumbling but loveable pop star trying to recapture former glories by representing le Royaume-Uni.

2) A gripping, heartfelt drama which captures the futility of war, when an argument over neighbourly voting leads to conflict between Malta and Lithuania.

3) A Eurovision-themed horror film in which the green room is beset by zombies on the night of the grand final, and only the Moldovan contingent can save the day. Working title: 28 Points Later. Starring Lordi.

4) A knockabout comedy in the vein of the Carry On films which sees Scooch being mistaken for airline staff and put in charge of a transatlantic flight. Chaos ensues.

 5) A lavish fantasy in which the UK wins Eurovision. Er……

    What fantasy? More likely a typical Hollywood production: we’ll make it a happy ending even if it’ll kill us!
