Epic Pictures Group, a production company based out of Los Angeles, has reportedly secured the rights to the footballer’s biography and aims to set it to film.

In speaking with Varity Magazine, Epic Pictures CEO Patrick Ewald stated “the goal is to make a powerful and positive film that will leave audiences feeling inspired to after their dreams no matter how impossible they may seem.”

The motion picture will be centered around ‘Messi’, a biography by Luca Caoli, and the production group has set a tentative goal for a release close to the 2014 World Cup.
