Will Ferrell is to star in a new Netflix comedy film based around the Eurovision Song Contest. He will also produce the film and co-write it with fellow ‘Saturday Night Live’ alumnus Andrew Steele.

According to Deadline, the film, titled ‘Eurovision’, will be set at the song contest, of which Ferrell has apparently been a fan for a number of years, since being introduced to it by his Swedish wife. The comedian was actually seen at this year’s event in Ukraine. So now at least we have an answer as to why that happened.

Details about the storyline, and what role Ferrell will play, are yet to be announced.
