Former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan is to star in a new film titled 'Eurovision' that will be centered around the kitsch European song contest that takes place every May.
Nothing is known about the character Brosnan will play, but it's unlikely to be another musical role.
Will Ferrell is producing the film for Netflix and will also star alongside actress Rachel McAdams - who will both play Icelanders.
Ferrell discovered Eurovision thanks to his Swedish actress wife Viveca Paulin who has been a selector for the Swedish representative.
McAdams was at this year's competition in Israel and last year Ferrell attended the event in Portugal.
Filming is due to begin in London this week and is also expected to take place in Tel Aviv and the northern Icelandic town of Húsavík.
