Catherine Zeta-Jones may be seeing a bit more of the folks back home in Wales next spring as she is busy lining up a film set in the world of rugby.

The comedy, Coming Out, is said to be in the vein of Billy Elliot, showing the difficulties of being a gay player in the rough-hewn crucible of the sport.

Zeta-Jones will be following in the footsteps of husband Michael Douglas by adding a string to her bow and producing the film, which is being developed by her Milkwood Films production company.

Douglas won an Oscar for producing One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. Alan Cumming is being tipped to co-star with the Welsh national treasure.
