Cult wartime soccer movie Escape to Victory is set for a remake.

The 1981 film, which starred Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine and a group of real sportsmen like Pele, Bobby Moore and Osvaldo Ardiles, will be revamped for the big screen by The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman.

The movie centers around a group of World War Two prisoners of war, who plan an escape around a soccer match between captive allies and their German guards.

The news of the new Hollywood film comes a day after the U.S. national team lost a crucial World Cup game to Germany 1-0 but still made it through to the tournament's knock-out round thanks to goal difference.
