In addition to the A-list talent that we will see on the big screen, there will be a hidden role for one of Wrexham’s players.

Ollie Palmer has apparently been spotted in the trailer according to fans of Wrexham and although Reynolds himself didn’t confirm it, the striker posted on Instagram in response to the trailer: “If you squint…”

Reynolds was then asked by a fan whether the 32-year-old featured, he replied: “Keen eyesight.”

If it is to be the case, Palmer will become the first player from the Red Dragons to feature in a Hollywood film since Reynolds and McElhenney bought the club back in 2021.

Wrexham are set to travel to Las Vegas in the summer to celebrate securing promotion to League One.
