A documentary telling the story of the late Jack Charlton is heading our way next month, and more details are here.

A new documentary shot over the last 18 months of Jack Charlton’s life is to get a cinema release in the UK next month.

The film promises an insight into Charlton’s sporting success both with England and as manager of the Irish national team. And it also shines a light on his battle with dementia too. It’s from Gabriel Clarke, who directed Bobby Robson: More Than A Manager and Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans, and Pete Thomas. Furthermore, they’ve sought and got contributions from many key figures throughout Charlton’s life, both family and professional.

His family have also given the filmmakers access to notes that Charlton made throughout his career, and footage from his footballing days has also been uncovered.

The film is set to get a release firstly in cinemas, but then will also be available on disc and demand from November 23rd. A BBC transmission is being lined up too.

Expect a trailer for the production shortly. In the meantime, you can order a copy here.
