Brazil s three-time world player of the year Ronaldo has agreed in principle to star in a film about a Palestinian child fan of his who dies in a refugee camp, it was reported last week.
The 32-year-old two-time World Cup winner will be with his club Corinthians in the Middle East – for a Sept. 15 friendly in the Palestinian Territories against fellow Brazilians Fluminense – at the time that the film is set to be made in Lebanon.
Ronaldo signed an agreement in principle last week, his agent Fabiano Farah told sports information provider El Globo.
A definitive agreement will be reached in September.
Ronaldo, though, has still to get permission from his club to act in the Iranian-directed film.
The all-time leading World Cup scorer is to play a peace emissary, a role he has already played in reality as in May 2005 he spent several hours visiting the Palestinian Territories. -AFP
