Two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo is set to produce his first scripted feature film, an ‘Ocean’s Eleven’-style heist comedy set in Greece.

While plot details and international cast are being kept under wraps, Variety reports that production is slated to begin this year.

The film will be the first of Studio Galazio and filmmaker Christopher André Marks’ new production banner, focused on bringing internationally minded stories with Greek themes to global audiences.

Also in the works is a prestige limited drama series and an untitled biopic on an influential Greek figure, all currently in development with high-profile talent attached.

“We are excited to shine additional light and join the wave of momentum Greek cinema has generated internationally, not only as a high-value shooting location for domestic and foreign productions, but also as a fertile ground for original storytelling that transcends well beyond its borders,” said Marks.

Marks is the CEO of Galazio and notably the co-producer and director of ‘King Otto’, a documentary that follows the 2004 Greek national soccer team from never winning a single tournament match to taking home the Euro Championship.

The film was released theatrically and on streaming platforms in over 70 territories, making it one of the widest-distributed independent Greek films of all time.

Galazio’s slate of Greek-themed films and TV series will be the latest in a recent run of projects with Greek themes.

Netflix’s first Greek original series ‘Maestro in Blue’ and the many high-profile international productions that have recently shot in Greece such as Rian Johnson’s Netflix blockbuster ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’ and the Maggie Gyllenhaal-directed ‘The Lost Daughter’.

Keeping busy off the court, Antetokounmpo will still be focused on his game as he is set to play in the Olympic qualifiers for Greece.

While the 2021 NBA champion missed out on the chance to play in the playoffs in May with injury, he’ll get his chance at high stakes basketball in July according to Greek national team head coach Vasilis Spanoulis.

The Greek national team has not played in the Olympics since 2008 in Beijing, China, when Spanoulis was still playing for the team and Antetokounmpo was just 14-years-old.
