Zlatan Ibrahimovic – the movie
Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s life is going to become a movie
The life of Zlatan Ibrahimovic will arrive on the big screen. The movie is from David Lagercrantz’s book “I am Zlatan Ibrahimovic” which went on sale in 2011 in Sweden. The book is an autobiography written by Zlatan Ibrahimovic himself, with the help of Swedish writer and journalist David Lagercrantz.
The movie about the world-famous footballer will begin recording next year and plans to be released in 2021. The director of the movie will be Jens Sjögren. This director has made comedies-dramas in Sweden, such as “Lycka till och ta hand om varandra” (Luck and take care of yourself), and also a television series such as «Torpederna» (The Torpedoes).
“I feel a great inspiration for the opportunity to make this movie”, says Jens Sjögren in a press release from Nordisk Film (Nordic Cinema) “I am excited but also a bit scared of being part of such a big and important project”. Nordisk Film will produce the film with B-Reel Films.
“I am Zlatan Ibrahimovic” is the story of Zlatan, since he was born in Rosengård, a suburb of the city of Malmö and spoke of football as an escape route for him. Then Zlatan’s magnificent career is followed in great football clubs such as Ajax from Holland, Juventus, Inter and Milan from Italy, Barcelona in Spain, Paris Saint-Germain in France and Manchester United in the United Kingdom.
It is not known who will play Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the film but the production team now looks for a child actor who can take the role when he was six and eleven years old.
