Paul Greengrass is preparing to shoot the FC Barcelona documentary Barça. Anonymous Content is financing and will handle US sales and FilmNation will handle international.
The project will trace the rise of the superstar team under ex-coach Pep Guardiola over four years to the pinnacle of the world game.
Richard Brown will produce for Anonymous Content and sports and political writer John Carlin will serve as executive producer.
“I’m excited to tell the extraordinary story of Barça and their magnificent achievements under Pep Guardiola on film,” Greengrass said. “They have given the world a rare glimpse of sporting perfection, and memories that will last for as long as the game is played.”
