Director Brian Grazer is bringing the early life of Brazilian soccer legend Pele to the big screen in a new biopic. The A Beautiful Mind filmmaker will produce the coming-of-age movie through his Imagine Entertainment company, reports the New York Post's Page Six column. The project will "trace Pele's childhood until he won his first World Cup in Sweden at the age of 17". The sports icon, 72, will accompany Grazer to the Cannes Film Festival in France later this month (May13) to promote the as-yet-untitled film, which is expected to be released to coincide with the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
