Zlatan Ibrahimovic to star in new Asterix and Obelix movieThe Swede and a new facet in his life
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, forward for Milan and the Swedish national team, isn't just another actor in the world of football and he does not pretend to be one either, so he displays, whenever he can, his eccentricism to attract attention. Ibrahimovic called himself "God", when he announced his return to the Swedish national team, he claimed to be Santa Claus and now, on his social networks, he published an image that simply reads "Antivirus".
The truth is that the former Barcelona is one of those soccer players who love the world of film and music. Without going any further, last March he presented the San Remo Festival in Italy. But this time, his participation in the artistic world goes much further. This Thursday it was announced that he will make his debut on the big screen.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic will play a Roman centurion in the next Asterix and Obelix film and the name of his character will be precisely “Antivirus” and he will share the bill, with none other than the mythical Gérard Depardieu.
Other athletes who have already appeared in films inspired by the legendary French comic are Michael Schumacher, Zinedine Zidane, Tony Parker and Amélie Mauresmo, specifically in ‘Asterix at the Olympic Games’ (2008).
