Coming soon to a theater near you, the story of Pele

Fresh on the heals of such great movies as Bend It Like Beckham, Goal! The Dream Begins and Ladybugs, Hollywood is developing a movie about the life of Pele.

Pele's life is ripe for cinematic treatment. He reportedly was responsible for a 48-hour ceasefire during a civil war in Nigeria so that people could watch him play. He was declared a national treasure by the government of Brazil.

Hopefully they will deal with all sides of Pele's life or else this will just be a clip show. Don't get me wrong, I like Pele, but good bio picks show everything, not just the glamour.

I'm definitely down for a Pele pic, but I'm not confident this one will be the objective flick you're looking for ... If I understand the story correctly, he signed with a new agent agency who promised him a biopic as part of the deal .. not too promising a start
