“Zlatan” against the indomitable Gauls: Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be seen in the role of the Roman Caius Antivirus in the new film “Asterix and Obelix: The Silk Road”.
The striker of the Italian table runner-up AC Milan confirmed this indirectly on Instagram. Like the other actors in the real film, Ibrahimovic (39) also posted the name of his protagonist.
Director Guillaume Canet’s film is slated to hit cinemas in 2022. The film, which has a budget of 60 million euros, was shot last year in China, among other places. The film is not based on a comic book.
The Swede Ibrahimovic joins a list of other sports stars who have already starred in an Asterix and Obelix film: Michael Schumacher and Zinedine Zidane were among others in the film “Asterix and Obelix at the Olympic Games” from the year 2008 to see.
