The comic actor will play a man who is suffering a mid-life crisis, but find a new meaning to his life as part of an all-male, middle-aged, amateur synchronised swimming team, after trying to win back his estranged wife.
Swimming With Men is inspired by Men Who Swim, a 2010 documentary observing a group of middle aged men in Stockholm, Sweden, who find unlikely fellowship as members of the country's all-male synchronised swimming team.
Gabrielle Stewart from HanWay Films says: "Swimming With Men has the DNA of some of our most beloved British comedies, from The Full Monty to Calendar Girls. If just half of the fun we have seen in practice in the pool these last few weeks translates onto the screen, we are in for another British comedy classic treat."
Rob Brydon is currently starring in The Trip To Spain. Swimming With Men is not his only film project in development. He is also set to appear as Inspector Lestrade in Holmes And Watson, a 2018 Hollywood comedy starring Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Hugh Laurie and Rebecca Hall.
Swimming With Men will be in cinemas in 2018.
