Into the big League

Gents plan a movie

The League of Gentlemen are planning a move onto the big screen next year.

Mark Gatiss told movie magazine Empire: "The League of Gentlemen film is our project for next year.

"It's all early days, but we'll use our usual criteria of casting leftfield people.

"It would be great to cast Chrisopher Lee as a young dwarf. And it'd be hard not to have Orlando Bloom so I could kiss him."

The team are currently working on a third TV series, expected to be shown this autumn.

The League of Gentlemen originally got their name from a movie - a1959 Jack Hawkins crime caper.
