Reminiscent of Catch Me If You Can, this is the astonishing true story of how a bankrupt con man bounced back to beat Hollywood at its own game. Colin Hayday's first scam was ingenious: he bought a skyscraper - with no money. When the scam failed, he realised the story could make a money-spinning movie. So he drove a taxi around Soho, London's film district, pitching the idea to everyone who got into his cab. When he picked up the Oscar-winning mogul behind Taxi Driver, The Sting and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, his next scam began. The Players is about endless cunning, reckless audacity, famous names and a most unlikely duo: Colin Hayday and screenwriter Jo Reynolds. It reveals the true story behind their $15 million movie deal and how they played off the world's press against the mighty Hollywood machine - to keep their dream alive.
