Deep-sea psychic who shot to fame for his uncanny football predictions is subject of film The Murder of Paul the Octopus
World Cup heroes make easy subjects for stirring cinema, be they real-life (The Game of their Lives, Zidane, The Miracle of Bern) or, usually more lucratively, fictional (Goal!, Sixty Six, Mike Bassett: England Manager). And now it seems the big star of this year's contest is to follow suit, for production has already wrapped on The Murder of Paul the Octopus, a fictional take on the eight-limbed beastie whose knack for predicting the match outcomes won him worldwide fame.
The film, a co-production between China Film Group Corporation and Beijing Filmblog Media Company, was shot over the past few weeks in South Africa using a body double, owing to the indisposition of the real Paul, who has gone into retirement. Release is scheduled for August. According to Sky News, »

Patrick Sheane Duncan ("Mr. Holland's Opus") is writing the screenplay about Bonner, who as a 7-year-old used his wagon to collect water and supplies in Tampa, Fla., for victims of 2004's Hurricane Charley. A year later, he formed the Little Red Wagon nonprofit to help underprivileged kids.
The film is being funded by the John Templeton Foundation through the Philanthropy Project and will be produced in association with Anonymous Content.
