‘Victory’ Getting Remake

Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra will direct Victory at Warner Bros., a remake of the uplifting sports movie of the same name which starred Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone and Pele, an individual with knowledge of the project exclusively told TheWrap.

The remake centers on the Nazi forces’ world-class English soccer coach John Colby, a POW with a history of trying to escape, effort to put together a team of other POW soccer stars for a game against the German national team in front of Hitler in occupied Paris. When given the opportunity to escape during the game, the players must decide whether to humiliate the Nazis in the eyes of the world and spark a resistance or to save their own lives.

The original is a damn good movie, if you haven’t checked it out, do so this weekend…
