Daniel Day-Lewis 'set to star' as Celtic Football Club founder in new flick
London, Mar. 21 (ANI): Daniel Day-Lewis has reportedly been cast as Celtic football club founder Brother Walfrid in a new movie.
The 3 time Oscar-winning actor is expected to be sounded out for the role by director Peter Mullan, the Sun reported.
And film insiders say that the 55-year-old star would be the perfect choice to portray the Parkhead pioneer in a big-budget movie about the club founder.

It's believed that Mullan is involved in the project with Rob Roy Films director Peter Broughan and scripts have already been written and discussions with Hoops bosses are ongoing.
