MICKEY Rourke admits he’s found it “very difficult” to raise money for his movie about gay rugby ace Gareth Thomas.

The actor will play the Welsh sportsman in an upcoming drama, which he admits has been plagued with financial difficulties.

“We’re going to be ready to shoot in February. We have probably 80 per cent of the money. It’s been very difficult because it’s not a comic book, it’s not a romantic comedy. It doesn’t fall in that category to raise money for,” he said.
