Escape to Victory remains one of my all time favourite things in football. However, one thing that has always bothered me about it and thats the original movie poster, which I’ve never really liked.
I’ve thought about reworking it for years… so finally decided to take it on as a project. Over the next few weeks / months I’m going to be putting together a homage of my own to this cult classic. Its going to be a huge work in progress, so I’ll be posting up various bits and pieces as it begins to take shape.
For starters here’s Major Karl Von Steiner, Carlos Rey (Ardiles), a random player from the German team and Slys love interest Renee.
UPDATE: I was fortunate enough to get my hands on some unseen production stills from the film itself. I will add them as a full gallery once the project is complete but in the meantime here’s a quick sneak peek… I like to think Sly is asking “where do I stand for a corner” in that photo.
