Cristiano Ronaldo lined up to join Angelina Jolie on Turkish television series
A man of many moves, Cristiano Ronaldo’s next one will be appearing in a series that will include Angelina Jolie and focuses on Syrian refugees.
The Turkish television series, called Hayat Koprusu, will focus on a Syrian family fleeing the war-torn country, and cameos from celebrities like Ronaldo, Jolie and others are reportedly lined up.
“We will begin filming in the first week of April, the series is about the plight of a refugee family and what they go through," director Eyup Dirlik told Turkish media, via Goal. "There will be appearances from actors and actresses from all over the world including Cristiano Ronaldo, Angelina Jolie and Nancy Ajram.”
Although this is a more unusual project for Ronaldo, he has previously spoken up in support of Syrian refugees and donated to help children affected by the ongoing war there. He also has spent plenty of time in Turkey for vacation and for his business endeavors, which included opening a mall in Istanbul in 2011.
According to reports out of Turkey, a trailer for the program has been shot already and filming for the actual series is expected to begin soon. There’s no word on when it will be done, but is planned to air in Turkey, the Middle East and Latin America.
