Garfield Producing Adidas vs Puma Movie

Fortitude International has acquired rights to the story of the sibling rivalry behind iconic sports brands Adidas and Puma.

Currently untitled and in development, the project will be produced by Andrew Garfield, Rupert Fowler and Nadine de Barros with Fowler penning the script.

Set against the backdrop of the rise of Nazi Germany, the film depicts the true story of the Dassler brothers – Adolf and Rudolf – and the family divide over their hand-sewn athletic footwear business that resulted in the emergence of two of the strongest sports brands in history.

The project is currently out to directors and shooting aims to begin next year.
