Dzhanik Fayziev to make film about Russian superhero


Dzhanik Fayziev, the director of “The Turkish Gambit” and “August Eighth,” plans to make a blockbuster “Galaxy Goalkeeper” about a Russian superhero fighting alien invaders, inspired by Marvel works, Russia Today reports.

Fayziev clarified that, according to the plot, people evolved and became part of a galactic society fighting creatures that look like “super-reactive turboballs,” so battles with them will look like football, hence the name of the film.

The nickname of the superhero is Yashin.

The film will have a budget of about 572 million rubles.
