FIFA movie United Passions has unveiled its first trailer.
The biopic, which stars Pulp Fiction’s Tim Roth as Sepp Blatter, delves into the football governing body’s 110-year history.
Gérard Depardieu will play Jules Rimet, the man who created the World Cup and served as FIFA president from 1921 to 1954. Sam Neill will play João Havelange, the body’s seventh president and Avengers: Age of Ultron star Thomas Kretschmann is Adidas founder Horst Dassler.
“Blatter is apparently good at finding money,” a grave voice intones in the trailer, before Roth’s Blatter secures a commercial ball contract with Adidas to keep FIFA in business.
£16 million of United Passions’ £19 million budget came from FIFA, according to The Guardian. Blatter himself is said to have worked on the script.
The film will premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in the cinéma de la plage strand. »
