Film Based On Ghana's Dysfunctional World Cup In The Works

The last remnants of the referee's magic foam have barely left the pitch following Ghana's final group game against Portugal but already a film based on part of their dysfunctional World Cup is in the mixer.

According to thewrap.com, production company Bugeater Films has optioned writer and director Darryl Wharton-Rigby's script based on the Ghanaian World Cup bonus fiasco.


The plot of the film revolves a courier who must bring $3 million to an African soccer team who are refusing to play until they get payed. Of course, en route with the money the courier gets ambushed and has just 12 hours to recover the money.

Wharton-Rigby really should shoehorn in a little sideplot about Kevin-Prince Boateng's two days without football boots.

Oh and John Boye kissing his share of the money should be on the movie poster.
