The true story: A posh blonde boy getting a movie made about his life? Surely we must be joking? Not a bit of it. He may just be a bland TV presenter, but he's had one hell of a life.
The Pitch: Colin Farrell (in his blonde Alexander wig) plays the former Tatler magazine picture editor, Ben. We start with his first taste of fame on reality TV show Castaway. Next we see Ben's struggle as he fights to become a top TV presenter, winning appearances on Countryfile and Crufts and then his tranformation into mighty adventurer, rowing across the Atlantic in the nude (see why we picked Farrell?) and running marathons. Finally, we see Ben's courageous battle against the potentially fatal flesh eating disease leishmaniasis. You couldn't make that up.
