Graham Norton Reportedly Considering Drastic Career Change

Graham Norton is reportedly set to make a dramatic career change away from the red sofa.

The beloved Irishman has a popular talk show on the BBC which airs every Friday during its two seasons a year.

Graham will reportedly go behind the camera as part of a new venture following his departure from Virgin Radio.

Norton’s company So Television will team up with Tiger Mountain production to produce the flick with Bridget Jones’ helmsman, Dan Mazer.

An insider told The Mirror: “The film has been financed by Sky and will be shot in Ireland in July and August. It has not been an easy road to get to this point, and the team at So, who are learning as they go, have found getting movies made is much harder than they expected.

“But this is a really exciting project and everyone has high hopes for it now the ball is really rolling.

“Talks are ongoing with some high-profile actors who would really make the script come alive.” It comes after his departure from his Virgin Radio programme after 13 years.

He went on: “It’s certainly not a goodbye, I’ll still be popping up here from time to time on Virgin Radio, and I’m looking forward to returning when I do.” T
