Paul the Octopus ‘to become silver screen legend’

LONDON: Paul the Octopus, who rose to fame with its incredibly accurate predictions of World Cup 2010 match results, is all set to become a part of the showbiz.

Filming of ‘The Murder of Paul the Octopus’ has already finished in South Africa and post-production work is well under way.

The film, which is expected to be hit theatres in August, has been produced by China Film Group Corporation and Beijing Filmblog Media Company.

However, Paul, who has gone into retirement, was not available to star in the movie so the director used a body double.

According to Sky News, the film will focus on Paul’s amazing winning streak and explore “how the octopus acquires the ability and discuss his possible fates”.
