Michael Fassbender Is Joining Taika Waititi's Dramady NEXT GOAL WINS
Before director Taika Waititi jumps back into the Marvel universe with Thor: Love and Thunder, he’s going to direct another smaller film project for Fox Searchlight. The film is called Next Goal Wins, and Michael Fassbender is joining the project!
The movie is based on the 2015 documentary that follows the true story of Dutch coach Thomas Rongen, “who attempts the nearly impossible task of turning the American Samoa soccer team from perennial losers into winners.”
I like Waititi’s quirky humor and storytelling style, and I’m confident that this is going to end up being another wonderfully entertaining movie. There’s no information on who Fassbender will play, but I assume he will be taking on the role of the coach.
