NZ On Air considering Stephen Donald flick

From whitebaiting to the Rugby World Cup final.

New Zealand On Air is considering funding a movie about Stephen Donald's incredible Rugby World Cup 2011 story.

The first five eighth was called in at the eleventh hour, when he was whitebaiting, and ended up slotted a penalty to help New Zealand lift the William Webb Ellis trophy.

He told Newstalk ZB's Tony Veitch the news came as a bit of a surprise.

"To be fair at the start of it I thought it was a bit outrageous but easier to do that than a book I guess so I guess that was the rationale in saying yeah."

Donald says he's not sure who will play the role of Beaver if the movie gets funding.
