Watch: YouTube Singing Sensation Paul Potts 'One Chance' Trailer
Since the inception of reality TV competitions, there have been plenty of stories of average people rising to fame overnight. One such tale is that of Paul Potts, a shop singer turned world famous opera singer who made waves after Simon Cowell picked him for "Britain's Got Talent." Now the story of Potts is getting the feature film treatment in One Chance (premiering at TIFF 2013 this week) from director David Frankel with "Gavin & Stacey" star James Corden taking the lead role with Julie Walters (Mrs. Weasley from Harry Potter) and Colm Meaney (Con-Air, Get Him to the Greek). It looks pretty cheesy in this first trailer, but it could be a cute little story for those who don't know Potts' story. Watch the trailer below!
Here's the first trailer for David Frankel's One Chance, originally from Empire:
One Chance is directed by David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada) and written by Justin Zackham (The Bucket List) and tells the true story of Paul Potts (James Corden), a shy, bullied shop assistant by day and an amateur opera singer by night.

Wowing audiences worldwide with his phenomenal voice, Paul won "Britain’s Got Talent" and the hearts of millions. Julie Walters, Mackenzie Crook, Colm Meaney and more star in the film hitting TIFF 2013 this week and the UK in October but doesn't have a US release date yet.
