Depardieu set for Jules Rimet role

Gerard Depardieu is to play Jules Rimet in an upcoming film recounting the story of how the Frenchman brought the World Cup to life.

Depardieu, 64, will have the lead role in the film, which currently goes under the working title of 'F2014', and will show how former FIFA president Rimet's brainchild of a global football competition led to the first World Cup taking place in 1930.

"We want to show all the emotion football can evoke, just like 'Invictus' did for rugby," Louise Maurin, one of the film's executive producers, is quoted as saying in L'Equipe.

The film will be directed by Frederic Auburtin, who will also co-write the screenplay with Jean-Paul Delfino, and filming is due to start in June with locations in Europe, Africa and South America.
