COMMENT - Formby’s legacy

Share this article

WOULDN’T it be fantastic if an actor such as Johnny Depp came to Wigan as part of his role playing George Formby in a film.

While the reality may be some way off if it does happen keep your eyes peeled as film insiders will tell you he likes to blend into his surroundings when researching films. He may well be sat beside you in your local pub so make sure you keep a look out. What a coup it would be for the town and George’s legacy if it did happen and Wigan was the focus of a Hollywood blockbuster.
