A few famous faces from the world of football are set to star alongside Martine McCutcheon and Alan Davies in the latest film looking to raise money via crowdfunding platform SyndicateRoom.

The producer of The Bromley Boys, ItchyFishFilm, is looking to raise £640,000 via SyndicateRoom’s members having already secured £305,000 from its lead investor group, headed by Bolton Wanderers FC chairman Ken Anderson.

The Bromley Boys, inspired by the book of the same name, is a feel-good football film and tracks the journey of non-league Bromley Football Club during the 1969/70 season through the eyes of die-hard fan Dave Roberts.

The funding for the UK independent film follows hot on the heels of Hollywood movie Salty, which raised £1.9mln via SyndicateRoom earlier this year.

“We’re seeing a trend towards films being funded via the crowd and recently we set a new record for the largest equity crowdfund film, Salty, directed by Simon West and starring Antonio Banderas,” said chief executive Goncalo de Vasconcelos.

“The Bromley Boys is yet another strong example of how crowdfunding is becoming the first choice of investment for raising funds by the creative industries.”

Filming for Bromley Boys begins this October with the release scheduled for next July.
