Searchlight Pictures’ is going to premiere its upcoming sports comedy film, “Next Goal Wins”, at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which is running from September 7th through to the 17th.
“Next Goal Wins” has been directed by Academy Award Winner Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit, Thor: Ragnarok), and it stars Michael Fassbender, Elisabeth Moss, Oscar Kightley, Uli Latukefu, Rachel House, Kaimana, David Fane, Beulah Koale, Chris Alosio, Taika Waititi, Will Arnett, and Rhys Darby.
The film follows the American Samoa soccer team, infamous for their brutal 31-0 FIFA loss in 2001. With the World Cup Qualifiers approaching, the team hires down-on-his-luck, maverick coach Thomas Rongen (Michael Fassbender), hoping he will turn the world’s worst soccer team around in this heartfelt underdog comedy.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Taika back to the Festival and share his audacious take on the most popular sport in the world. Next Goal Wins is perfect for TIFF fans of the beautiful game looking for their football fix until the 2024 World Cup arrives.”
