A new biopic detailing the life of Rangers legend Paul Gascoigne is set to be produced by UK and Norwegian production company 16:02 films.

’30 Years of Hurt’ is the working title for the feature which will look at the life of one of Britain’s most talented but troubled sportsmen.

The idea behind the film is to show the circumstances which shaped the England legend into the man he is today. It is set to be released next year. The film is being supported by Gascoigne himself.

“It’s not easy being Gazza, but thanks to the love and support from the fans, I’m still kicking,” he said, as quoted by The Mirror.

“I want this film to tell them my story…of how it was, is and will be!”


It should be an emotional rollercoaster of a film and will surely include snippets of his time at Rangers. It’s certainly something Rangers fans will be eager to see.


Casting is currently underway, with Producer Chris Ward claiming a star from Game of Thrones could play the lead role.

It’s been a hectic year for Gascoigne. Rangers fans protested after the legendary midfielder was prevented from entering the Scottish Football Hall of Fame earlier last campaign.

Gascoigne responded by saying he was in the only Hall of Fame that matters – the Rangers one.

The midfielder also played for Tottenham, Newcastle, and Lazio during the height of his success. He recently made an emotional return to Tottenham for a Legends Game at the New White Hart Lane earlier this year.
