The legendary Hungarian film producer and media mogul, Andy Vajna, had been working enthusiastically on a new production about the legendary Hungarian football player, Ferenc Puskás, before his death. Now, his widowed wife Tímea Vajna and Joe Eszterhas have finally come together to work on the movie together.
Bors reported that Vajna’s biggest dream was to put the legendary football player on the screen, and now the project is finally becoming a reality with the contribution of Tímea Vajna and Joe Eszterhas. The widowed wife reported that the production of the movie has started, and she is eager to help as a producer to make Andy’s dream come true. Tímea Vajna has learned a lot from the film producer and even talked about the movie before he suddenly died last year in January.
It turned out that Joe Eszterhas, a friend of Andy Vajna and a legendary film producer (Flashdance, Showgirls, Basic Instinct), is also involved in the project.
György Szőllősi, the director of the Puskás heritage, has stated that he also contacted Eszterhas and Vajna about the project and is ready for the production to be started. The first draft has been written and is currently being examined by Szőllösi and Vajna, adding some corrections and finishing touches.
The exact date and the cast of the production have not been announced yet.
The legendary Hungarian football player’s name is known worldwide; according to a goal.com poll, he became the greatest football player of all time in 2016 beating even Christiano Ronaldo. However, he is not the only famous Hungarian sportsman who will be portrayed on screen in the future.
