According to Dan Wooton Dougie has got a new movie role in an independent british film. *edited* now this news have been confirmed! ongrats Dougie!!!!
The pop star has bagged himself the role of hero Hale in the new film
DOUGIE POYNTER’s superpower isn’t just slapping the bass.
The McFLY star will soon have even more magic in his fingertips after bagging a part in a new superhero movie.
I’ve learned Dougie has been cast as hero Hale in Brit flick The Academy. It’s a huge deal for him as he has been plugging away doing auditions and having acting lessons in Los Angeles as he bids to get his Hollywood career off the ground.
Last night a source said: “Dougie is delighted to have landed a part in The Academy and can’t wait to get stuck into his role.
“It’s a proper independent British movie so there will be loads of freedom in terms of what he can do.
“The film’s makers have created a completely original superhero universe set in a university-type situation where all the students have superpowers.
“One breathes fire, another controls electricity and one has the strength of ten men.
“Dougie’s character is focal to the storyline as he ends up being captured in a big plot twist. He starts shooting in mid-January.”
Dougie’s co-stars include BRIAN BOVELL, best known for his roles in Coronation Street and Hollyoaks as well as a recent appearance in BBC drama The Missing.
The Academy is Dougie’s second big-screen casting after I revealed earlier this year that he had landed the male lead in comedy film Kat and the Band as his first professional role.
It’s set to be a very busy 2017 indeed for Dougie as I’m told he is also heading back into the studio with McFly.
An insider said: “McFly are all getting together in January for a writing trip to start work on their new album.
“Dougie is going to have a lot on his plate in the new year but he’s excited.”
All he needs now is the superpower to stop time to cram it all in.
