Football film premieres at Cannes.

A new film depicting the beginning of FIFA has debuted at the Cannes Film Festival this year that sees popular British actor Tim Roth starring as everyones favourite hate figure Sepp Blatter.

Best known as Mr Orange in Reservoir Dogs, Roth is also joined by French actor Gérard Depardieu as the World Cup creator Jules Rimet, and former Jurassic Park star Sam Neill as Blatter’s predecessor João Havelange.

The film, United Passions, cost a reported £19m to make, with Fifa said to have pumped £16m into the project, and flatteringly portrays Blatter, Rimet and Havelange as visionaries and icons of the global game. Blatter himself was reported to have tweaked the script.
