Ben Affleck to set to produce a new movie about Chuck Blazer and the FIFA scandal that rocked the world earlier this year. The film will be directed by Gavin O’Connor and the main character will be former FIFA executive turned FBI informant Chuck Blazer.
Affleck will produce a film alongside director Gavin O’Connor to chronicle the scandal that’s rocked football’s governing body over the past few months, according to the Hollywood Reporter (h/t the Guardian).
The film will revolve around the activities of former CONCACAF executive Chuck Blazer, who padded his wallet over television deals and bribes before ultimately becoming an FBI informant in 2013 as part of a plea deal.
I can’t wait for the scene that shows us how Blazer got the ridiculous idea to have a penthouse for his cats.
