HOLLYWOOD – Embattled FIFA President Sepp Blatter is to be the subject of Martin Scorsese’s new movie Badfellas.
The eyebrow rich director spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec about the project:
I’ve always been fascinated by morally corrupt individuals. Gangsters like Henry Hill, megalomaniacs like Howard Hughes or Jordan Belfort, religious figures like Jesus Christ or the Dalai Llama. So it really is no surprise that I should be drawn to the FIFA President who manages to get himself re-elected President, the week that his organisation has become an internationally famous byword for corruption, kickbacks and sleaze! It’s truly phenomenal.
Who will play him?
Harvey Keitel has been looking at the role for years, but Harvey is a bit long in the tooth. Leonardo diCaprio would be perfect but after spending so much time researching the Wolf of Wall Street I don’t think he could do another film about this amount of excess again. In the end I think we’re going to have to go with Sepp Blatter.
He’ll play himself?
Absolutely. I mean this man has balls of brass. He just doesn’t give a shit.
Badfellas will be released shortly after Blatter is arrested.
