Will Arnett Replaces Armie Hammer in Taika Waititi’s Film Next Goal Wins

MOVIE NEWS – Armie Hammer has been fired from Taika Waititi’s Next Goal Goals, presumably due to his troubled affairs, and is already in the process of reshooting with Will Arnett.


Armie Hammer is a famous American actor best known for his performances in such films as Call Me By Your Name (97%), Agent CIPOL (67%), Rebeca (64%), Social Network (96%), Hotel Mumbai: The Attack (79%), The Lone Ranger (31%), among others. Armie Hammer’s career was solid until, at the beginning of the year 2021, it began to crumble after being accused of sexual abuse by different women. Although the actor has denied any charge and ensures that all relationships were consensual, his career is already in a tailspin since, so far, he has been fired from numerous projects. It does not seem that his situation will improve.

One of the productions that Hammer was fired after allegations were the film Taika Waititi, Next Goal Wins, which is based on the movie of 2015 of the same name that tells the true story of coach Dutch-born Thomas Rongen, who tries to take the American Samoa soccer team from constantly losing to winning. For the feature film, Waititi wrote the script collaborating with Iain Morris.

Will Arnett is the one who will replace Hammer in the film from the director of Jojo Rabbit (75%) and Thor: Ragnarok (92%). Arnett, who is best known for his work as a voice actor on various animated films such as Monsters vs Aliens (72%), Despicable Me (81%), Lego The Great Adventure (96%) and LEGO Batman: The Movie (91%), will play an executive from the American Samoa Soccer Federation. According to Deadline, Arnett re-recorded the Hammer scenes recently. The film is expected to hit theatres next year with a cast that includes Elisabeth Moss, Oscar Kightley, David Fane, Beulah Koale, Lehi Falepapalangi, Semu Filipo, Uli Latukefu and Angus Sampson.
