‘Antivirus’: Zlatan Ibrahimovic to make big screen debut in Asterix film | Zlatan Ibrahimovic

AC Milan and Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to make his big screen debut in the next Asterix film.

The 39-year-old posted the word “Antivirus”, the name of his character, on his Instagram account using the typeset and colours associated with the Goscinny/Uderzo heroes.

Ibrahimovic, who was recently recalled to the Swedish national team and is likely to feature in this year’s delayed Euro 2020, will play a Roman called Caius Antivirus in Asterix and Obelix: the Middle Empire, the fifth film in the live action series.

The film, which will be directed by Guillaume Canet who also plays Asterix the Gaul, will also star Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard as Cleopatra and Gilles Lellouche as Obelix.

Production of the film was due to take place last year but was delayed due to the pandemic.

With a budget of over 60m euros, it is already shaping up to be one of the biggest French productions.
