Former British boxer Frank Bruno would like Eddie Murphy or Lenny Henry to play him on the big screen. "The film is in very early days. We are talking. But to make a film is quite a long process, you've got get funding. The script is on the table but we're not sure what we're going to do. Hopefully, it will be made in Britain... that makes sense.

"Lenny Henry would be good. I'd like to see Eddie Murphy do it really, get him out of retirement. Eddie has been settling down but we need him back," Bruno told BANG Showbiz. Bruno is currently working with Heineken on their Brewing Good Cheer campaign which aims to reduce social isolation over the Christmas period.
