Carlo Ancelotti is reportedly set for a surprise big screen debut after landing a cameo role in next year’s Star Trek sequel. The former Real Madrid manager has been making the most of his sabbatical year after leaving the La Liga giants in the summer. And now, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian coach has revealed that he has secured a cameo role in ‘Star Trek Beyond’. He has reportedly already filmed the scene in Vancouver after landing the role due to his friendship with actress Zoe Saldana.
Saldana, 37, has starred in the latest Star Trek films as Nyota Uhura and it is believed the actress played a role in Ancelotti’s surprise movie role. Star Trek Beyond is set to be released in July 2016 but it remains to be seen if the Italian will have a new managerial job by then. Earlier this month, he revealed that another stint in the Premier League is on his list of things to do before he retires from the game.
