Rhys Darby, Angus Sampson are the latest actors to join the cast of Taika Waititi's next, Next Goal Wins, which stars Michael Fassbender in the lead. The sports drama also features Chris Alosio and Sisa Grey in important roles.
The story follows Dutch coach Thomas Rongen who attempts the nearly impossible task of turning the American Samoan soccer team from perennial losers into winners. Waititi and Iain Morris have penned the film, which is based on the 2014 British soccer documentary from directors Mike Brett and Steve Jamison.
Currently filming in Hawaii, Next Goal Wins features an ensemble cast including the likes of Elizabeth Moss, Oscar Kightley, David Fane, Beulah Koale, Lehi Falepapalangi, Semu Filipo, Uli Latukefu, Rachel House, and Kaimana.
Waititi is also producing the project alongside Jonathan Cavendish and Garrett Basch, with Andy Serkis, Will Tennant, and Kathryn Dean serving as executive producers.
