Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer are making a movie about the late Michael Jackson's iconic white glove.

The "Big Night Out" comics wrote the screenplay for "The Glove" a decade ago and have now secured backing from production company StudioPOW and can't wait to get started.

Vic said: "We wrote it, we're in it and we're filming it next year."

The 59-year-old comedian - whose real name is Jim Moir - described the film to the Daily Mirror newspaper as "a new "Holy Grail" but the Holy Grail is Michael Jackson's glove."

And StudioPOW have promised a number of "legendary comics and actors" will be involved in the "laugh-out-loud" comedy.
