Manchester United squad to star in remake of The Sixth Sense

Manchester United's entire squad will have minor roles to play in a remake of the Hollywood blockbuster 'The Sixth Sense' after their form this season.


Manchester United’s entire squad will feature in a remake of the 1999 blockbuster film ‘The Sixth Sense’, it has been confirmed.

The likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Wayne Rooney will all have ‘minor parts’ to play in the new version of the classic horror flick, which is set for release later this year.

It comes after United finished a Premier League weekend in sixth position for the 15th consecutive week since the start of November.



They briefly vacated sixth after beating Watford on Saturday, but Liverpool’s victory over Tottenham just hours later bumped them back into their now customary position.

Club spokesperson Lee Satchell said: “Given where the lads have been in the table all season the offer, if you’ll pardon the pun, makes sense.

“Jose loves the film and was keen to pay tribute to his players’ incredible ability to remain exactly where they are – in sixth – whilst still trying to convince people they’re in a title race.

“The film also revolves around a troubled and isolated little boy which we felt perfectly sums up Luke Shaw’s current situation.”

Unconfirmed reports claim the idea was pitched after Pogba’s lifeless display against Liverpool last month, as it echoed the film’s iconic ‘I see dead people’ line.
