Dons story on big screen

31 March 2016

Plans for an AFC Wimbledon film

We are delighted to announce that AFC Wimbledon has reached an agreement with Hollywood studio, Fox 2000, for the release of an exciting film about the club.

AFC Wimbledon’s remarkable story will be chronicled on the big screen, starting with its formation in 2002, subsequent trials on Wimbledon Common, and rapid rise to the Football League of five promotions in nine years.

The movie will be produced by our friend and backer John Green, Rosianna Halse Rojas, and Temple Hill Entertainment.

The project is in its early development phase, the studio will shortly be appointing a writing team to start telling the story.

John Green said: "I am so, so, excited to be part of the team working on the AFC Wimbledon movie. AFC Wimbledon isn't just one of the best underdog stories in sports history; it's also a story about a community that fought the injustice of the Milton Keynes debacle and is now just this week fighting to have its stadium back in Wimbledon.

"The strength and the resilience of that community is an inspiration to many, and I am sure that AFC Wimbledon's story will have a happy ending."

Matthew Breach, Chair of the Dons Trust which owns AFC Wimbledon, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to tell a great story and we are delighted that it is being produced by a great story-teller, our friend and staunch supporter, John Green.”

We will update supporters when we have more details about a project that promises to offer great exposure for the club and bring our story to a wider audience.
