Bonneville for Mrs Brown film?

Brendan O'Carroll would like to see Hugh Bonneville cast in the big screen version of Mrs Brown's Boys

Mrs Brown's Boys creator Brendan O'Carroll is hoping to line up Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville to star in a big screen version of the BBC sitcom.

Funnyman Brendan is working on a film which would see his alter ego Agnes fight to save her veg stall from closure, and reckons Hugh would be perfect to play a barrister with Tourette's Syndrome.

He told the Sun: "This barrister hasn't represented anyone for five years because when he is under pressure he develops Tourette's.

"I'm hoping to get Hugh Bonneville for the part. I wrote it with him in mind and couldn't stop laughing - I think he'd be brilliant."

Filming for the movie is set to begin in August ahead of a release in 2014.
