Just a month ago he made his first steps as a singer at the San Remo Festival and now Zlatan Ibrahimovic will also make a foray into the world of cinema.
The information that the Milan striker will play a role in the fifth “Asterix and Obelix” film, which will be titled “The Silk Road”, seems to be confirmed when Ibrahimovic himself published a photo with the word “Antivirus” on red background on his Instagram account in reference to the name of the character he will play. Specifically, he will play a Roman, Caius Antivirus.
Already at the San Remo Festival in March, Ibra confessed that he would like to have an experience as an actor, but the news that he would be chosen for the Asterix film, directed by French Guillaume Canet and whose premiere is scheduled for 2022, have been a surprise.
The pandemic postponed filming
The filming of this film, which was to take place in part in China, had to be postponed until spring 2020 due to the Covid-19 health crisis. With a budget of more than 60 million euros, it is already shaping up to be one of the largest French productions in the coming months.
At 39, Ibra is Milan’s top scorer this season with 17 goals scored in all competitions and everything indicates that in the next few days he will reach an agreement to renew his contract until 2022.
