Angel Nieto's life will become a movie. His sons, Gelete and Pablo, confirmed this in an interview with Diario ABC : “We’re very excited. It’s still early, because we’ve just started the project, and we still have a lot to do. We still don't know which platform it will be shown on."
The film will be a tribute to the career of the 12 + 1 times world champion. "The new generations don’t know who my father really was,” Gelete explained. “The idea is to start when he was a child and finish – even if it’s not entirely decided – when he won the last World Championship."
The first rumors about the actor who will play Nieto are also out: Juan José Ballesta, and his son might play the part of Angelo as a boy.
