Accidental film-maker may have the last laugh

When Roger Devlin, chairman of Marston’s and erstwhile head of mergers and acquisitions at Hill Samuel in New York, wrote a film script about a rogue trader its chances of making it on to the big screen appeared remote. Not to be put off, Mr Devlin turned co-producer to make Breaking the Bank, and last year it went on general release after being picked up by Universal. The film, starring Kelsey Grammer and Tamsin Greig, below, had mixed reviews but it has been shortlisted for best comedy at the National Film Awards UK tomorrow.
