LONDON: Actors Tim Roth and Gerard Depardieu have agreed to star in a film about FIFA president Sepp Blatter, senior FIFA officials have confirmed. The project, being made by a French production company, is due to be released next year to coincide with the World Cup finals in Brazil and FIFA’s 110th anniversary and tells the story of world soccer’s governing body since its formation in 1904. Roth, a 52-year-old Englishman, will play Blatter, a 77-year-old Swiss, while Frenchman Depardieu will play former FIFA president and compatriot Jules Rimet, who was among FIFA’s founding fathers and served as the body’s president from 1921 until 1954.–Reuters
