The film, which has a working title of Trumped, will see the makers of hit comedy The Inbetweeners, Young Films, team up with Anthony Baxter, who made the controversial and award-winning documentaries You’ve Been Trumped and A Dangerous Game, which chart the impact of the billionaire’s development on the local community.

Chris Young, the head of Skye-based Young Films, who bought the rights to the story, said he believed the tale had the ingredients to be a “Local Hero for the 21st century”, describing it as “a cross between The Full Monty and Seven Samurai”.
