Veteran actor Christopher Walken has added his star power to Hugh Jackman's upcoming biopic about bespectacled British Olympic ski jumper EDDIE 'THE EAGLE' EDWARDS. The Hollywood icon will portray the mentor to Jackman's Chuck Berghorn, a down-and-out American ski expert who helped to train the unlikely sportsman for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada. Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton will tackle the role of Edwards. Dexter Fletcher will direct the project, with Matthew Vaughn serving as a producer.
