Thor director Taika Waititi has an unusual upcoming project. He will be bringing the American Samoa national football team to Hollywood.

The so far untitled film is based on the 2014 British documentary Next Goal Wins, which followed American Samoa as it attempted to win its first game since joining FIFA in 1998. The story centred on the Quixotic campaign to qualify for the 2014 World Cup finals, despite being ranked the worst team in the world by FIFA and having lost all 29 of their previous matches.
