Kenny Dalglish was on hand for the premier of the movie Will Sunday night in Liverpool. The movie is about one fan’s quest to attend Liverpool FC’s 2005 UEFA Champions League final in Istanbul, according to the Liverpool Echo.
“It was a good laugh making it.” The Liverpool manager said. “The film is a further extension of all the good work that’s been done in the city. It’s magnificent.”
The movie is about an orphan Will Brennan, who escapes his orphanage to attend the final in memory of his late father. His adventure becomes national news back home in England.
Dalglish and club captain Steve Gerrard were part of the cast. The movie stars Perry Eggleton, who plays Will.
