At 39, Zlatan is not getting any younger and he knows it. He’s therefore set to feature in a movie as he announced on his Instagram page today with his character – “Antivirus”. The movie – Asterix and Obelix: the Silk Road – is due to be released in 2022, with filming set to begin soon according to RMC Sport.
The movie is directed by Guillaume Canet – who also stars as Asterix, with Gilles Lellouche as Obelisk. In addition, Vincent Cassel, of Ocean’s 12 fame, is Cesar, and Marion Cotillard, of Inception, Batman, and many, many more, is Cleopatra.
The movie is set to be shot in France and Morocco after plans to shoot it in China were sabotaged. Zlatan, who rejoined AC Milan early last year, chipping in 10 league goals has been a major force in the Serie A this season scoring 15 goals despite being out injured for a large spell.
Milan fans will hope that his new commitment doesn’t distract him their UCL bid this season while they hope he signs a new deal.
