The film is due to be released on December 21st 2007 with an impressive cast including: Rupert Everett, Colin Firth, Stephen Fry, Russell Brand, Jodie Whittaker and Mischa Barton. It features various key scenes in which the girls are seen playing hockey. As it is set in the present day the film producers decided that the girls should wear mouthguards, as recommended by England Hockey and many other major sporting organisations. They contacted OPRO who agreed to help.
Dr Anthony Lovat, Managing Director at OPRO, explains:” We sent the production team 35 of our OPRO Direct kits which enabled each of the actresses to make an impression of their teeth. These were then sent back to our laboratory in Hertfordshire where our trained dental technicians were able to make individual custom-fitting OPRO mouthguards for each actress. We were delighted to assist in what promises to be a fabulous remake of the British classic. ”
