Directed by David Dobkin, Eurovision is an American comedy film set to be released soon. The film is about Icelandic singers Sirgrit Ericksdottir and Lars Erickssong who get a chance to represent in Eurovision Song Contest.
The movie will be released on and distributed by Netflix soon. It was announced in June 2018. It was set to release in May 2020 to coincide with the actual “Eurovision” contest but had to delay due to COVID 19 pandemic. Eurovision started in Switzerland in 1956. Since then it has been the world’s biggest music competition. Singers like Celine Dion are the products of Eurovision (Switzerland 1988).
Comedian, Will is a co-writer of the script and is playing as the lead in the movie. Will himself is a very big fan of “Eurovision”. He was introduced to “Eurovision” by his Swedish wife Viveca Paulin in 1998 since then he has not missed a single competition since 1999. He also attended the finals of Eurovision 2014 in Denmark. Ferrel himself has sung in his previous movies like “Step Brother” so, it won’t be a surprise if Ferrel’s voice is heard in this movie as well. “James Bond” fame, Pierce Brosnan will be playing the role of Erik Erickssong, father of Lars Eriksson (Will Ferrel).
