Port Isaac is heading for the big screen.

It is confirmed there will be a film about sea shanty group Fisherman's Friends - three years after Pirate FM broke the news movie bosses were negotiating for the rights.

It will tell the story of the group being talent spotted, to winning a million pound record contract, to playing at Glastonbury in 2011.

It will be directed by the Launceston man behind Calendar Girls.

Nigel Cole has already filmed Saving Grace in the fishing village. He said he was "very much looking forward to making a truly British movie."

Singer John Cleeve said: "I think they want to do a film along the lines of Calendar Girls or The Full Monty or something like that. A film about ordinary people - that would appeal to us.

"We are just a bunch of blokes. Anyone who knows us around the county knows where we're from and what we're about.

"We're not a construct. We are what we say we are."

It is expected that filming will get underway in spring next year - but there is no news on who will be cast to play the group.
