Obree film out in spring 2006

The £3m Hollywood bio-picture on Graeme Obree, "The Flying Scotsman", will be out in spring 2006, although Mel Films, the production company behind the project, has been placed into administration. Starring "Trainspotting" star Jonny Lee Miller, the movie has finished filming and should make it to the big screen despite the latest setback.

First 10 min-rushes have been viewed and all are happy with the results, including Graeme Obree himself. Administrators Tenon Recovery say the film will go ahead. "Our priority is to make sure The Flying Scotsman is released," Kenneth Craig, of Tenon Recovery, told Bikebiz.co.uk. Other financing partners include NRW, BBC Scotland, Bank of Ireland, Glasgow Film Office, Pictorion Das Werk, IFC, and Scottish Screen.
