|Film Fans Could Cash in on Full-Monty Follow-up|
- Thousands up for grabs in competition to win share of profits
FILM buffs wanting to get in on the movie business may well have their chance in a project by the producer of The Full Monty.
A competition to win a cut of the profits from Full Monty producer Uberto Pasolini's new film could net moviegoers thousands of pounds.
British distributors Film Four are behind the competition to be run on their website, which offers a 1 per cent stake in the Emperor's New Clothes. The film, a comedy about Napoleon's attempt to make a secret comeback, stars Brit faves Ian Holm and Blackadder star Tim McInnerny.
However, there is a small catch - whatever the profits, the prize money is not to exceed UKP50, 000. A spokesperson said: "This is an incredible chance to be part of the movie world."
The Full Monty, a hit comedy about unemployed Sheffield steel workers, clocked up UKP52 million at the box office, before going on to win four Bafta awards in 1998. Until recently it was the most successful British film ever, an accolade now held by Stephen Daldry's Billy Elliot.
