Amy director to tackle Steven Gerrard film

The Oscar-nominated director behind the acclaimed Amy Winehouse documentary is hoping to score with a new film about English soccer star Steven Gerrard.
Less than a month after Asif Kapadia confirmed reports suggesting he is tied to a new film about Argentine sportsman Diego Maradona, the Amy director, who also tackled the Senna film about tragic Brazilian Formula 1 hero Ayrton Senna, will be announced as the man behind Gerrard The Film at an event in Los Angeles on Thursday (25Feb16).
Kapadia is in Hollywood ahead of the Oscars on Sunday (28Feb16), when he is expected to collect the Best Documentary Academy Award for Amy.
Former Liverpool and England ace Gerrard, who currently plays for David Beckham’s former Major League Soccer team the Los Angeles Galaxy, will join Asif at the launch of his new film project.
