MGM Looks Up to "The Flying Scotsman"

Flying Scotsman, The picture


MGM Films has obtained the distribution rights to "The Flying Scotsman", a based-on-true-story movie about Scottish cyclist Graeme Obree.

"The Flying Scotsman" is about to make a safe landing in the States. MGM has picked up the distribution rights to this inspiring British film, an adaptation of Scottish cyclist Graeme Obree's autobiography of the same title published in 2003.

Plotted to be released on December 29, the picture depicts Obree's struggle in breaking world records on a bicycle he designed from scrap metal and old washing machine part despite his mental illness. Johnny Lee Miller, Billy Boyd, and Laura Fraser are all starring under the direction of British TV director Douglas Mackinnon.

Founded in April 1924, MGM nowadays serves as an independent, privately-held motion picture, television, home video, and theatrical production and distribution company. It is now being owned by an investor consortium comprised of Providence Equity Partners, Texas Pacific Group, Sony, and Comcast Corporation among others.
