Gary Barlow is in advanced negotiations to pen the soundtrack for the upcoming movie about Olympic ski-jumper Eddie the Eagle Edwards.
Gary Barlow is in talks to write the soundtrack for the Eddie the Eagle movie.
The Take That star has reportedly entered into advanced negotiations with producer Matthew Vaughn to pen the score for the currently untitled film about the 1988 Olympic ski-jump failure Eddie Edwards.
A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Gary loves the Eddie the Eagle story and Eighties music so it's a perfect match.
''It's also the first time he would have written an entire soundtrack, so it's an exciting project to be involved in.''
'Harry Potter' star Rupert Grint was originally tipped for the starring role in the movie - which follows former plasterer turned ski-jumper Eddie famously finish last in the 70m and 90m events during the Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada - although the lead is yet to be cast.
Meanwhile, it isn't the first time, Barlow, 43, has teamed up with Vaughan after writing songs for his upcoming thriller 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' which is set to be released in February and his 2007 fantasy film 'Stardust'.
He also worked on the 'Finding Neverland' theatre musical with US-born producer Harvey Weinstein last year.
