LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are turning their shock buy of Welsh soccer crew Wrexham right into a TV sequence, the FX community mentioned on Tuesday.
“Welcome to Wrexham,” will hint the efforts of the 2 actors, each of them novices relating to British soccer, to enhance the fortunes of the small membership which has by no means competed in top-flight English soccer.
Reynolds, the star of superhero comedy film “Deadpool,” and McElhenney, the creator of TV sequence “It’s All the time Sunny in Philadelphia,” purchased Wrexham in February from the membership’s supporters, who owned it.
The membership mentioned the actors had invested some 2 million kilos ($2.76 million) as a part of the takeover deal.
“We are able to by no means really ‘personal’ the world’s third oldest membership. All (we) can do is attempt to enhance the membership for its true and endlessly homeowners – the group of Wrexham,” McElhenney tweeted on Tuesday.
FX mentioned the sequence would “observe Rob and Ryan’s crash course in soccer membership possession and the inextricably related fates of a crew and a city relying on two actors to carry some severe hope and alter to a group that would use it.”
FX didn’t say when the documentary sequence would air in the USA, or whether or not it will be out there in Britain.
The actors introduced the sequence with a tongue-in-cheek video on their social media accounts, that includes a Welsh translator.
“There is no such thing as a means these two can handle a soccer membership. And the one with the toupee thinks Wales is in Scotland,” the translator says in Welsh.
Wrexham, referred to as the Crimson Dragons, was based in 1864 and presently performs in England’s fifth-tier soccer league.
