Cristiano Ronaldo to release film…about himself of course

There simply isn’t a bigger name in the world of soccer than the reigning FIFA Ballon d’Or (World Player of the Year) Cristiano Ronaldo. He’s everywhere in just about every language and every company wants him to market their latest gear and goods.

You don’t even have to say his last name and have people ask you if you mean the Brazilian or Portuguese player anymore (and really haven’t had to in a long while).

So, what do you do when you have won everything and want for nothing? Why of course, film a documentary movie to showcase just how awesome you really are.

According to reports, Ronaldo’s film is simply going to be titled “Ronaldo” and will be directed by award winning director Anthony Wonke.

It’s a film that apparently has been in the works for awhile, as it tells the story of his 2014-15 season journey. Given the fact that he won the Ballon d’Or, had crazy ups and downs with Real Madrid and the infamous split with Irina Shayk there is plenty to pick from for this film.

Still, the question remains just how in-demand a film about one single player on one of the world’s most famous teams will be.

If it ever released to theaters in the United States one would have to bet it easily tops the ill-timed and embarrassing FIFA propaganda…err, film, titled United Passions. That thing managed to make all of $900 in the United States during its first week out in theaters.

Perhaps it will also flop worse than Ronaldo? (what too right on the nose for you).

Either way, this thing is getting made because Ronaldo says so, and we all do what Ronaldo tells us to do.
