And it sounds like it could be incredible. 

David Lagercrantz, who co-wrote the memoir and is well-known for picking up the international best-selling “Millennium” franchise, will write the film, which will cover Zlatan’s rise from the poor suburbs of Malmo through to his success and fame with Ajax and beyond.

It’s even rumoured that Zlatan will co-produce the film, which will have an estimated budget of €5 million and will be shot around his hometown of Malmo as well as in Amsterdam and Turin, which leads us to believe we’ll get to see his spells at Ajax and Juventus.

Nohrborg, who knows the veteran striker personally, said: “Zlatan has had an unbelieving destiny; he was brought up in a ghetto where more than 90% of the youth end up being delinquents, and he made everything himself, he’s completely self-learned.”
