Millions of soccer fans around the world were saddened and shocked by the Cabañas story – but despite hundreds of news stories in magazines, newspapers and on television, the facts of the case have been murky – until now!
MBROS Media is committed to delivering the creative adaptation of this gripping, real-life drama set in the context of the massive popularity of global Futbol. "The timing is perfect, with the explosion of soccer in the US, a story such as this one is poised for success...," commented Joe Martinez, Executive Producer of the project, and adds "...Cabañas' story offers a 'telenovela' setting where the protagonist, a poor Paraguayan 'Indian' kid, rises to fame and fortune as a soccer player driven by his desire to succeed, passion and skills -- only to see it all disappear in a muzzle-flash at age 29, at the hands of a Mexican Cartel hitman. But there's so much more to this story that we can't wait to reveal in this film."
Cabañas: The Untold Story promises to be the next soccer themed global cinema sensation – akin to the multi-million-dollar success stories like 'Bend It Like Beckham!' (75 Million World Wide), and 'Goal! The Dream Begins' (27 Million World Wide). The screenplay and book rights have been acquired and are now in development and EP Joe Martinez is fully confident that major studio backing is forthcoming.
