Manchester United icon Eric Cantona will present a new documentary which he has also co-written telling the ‘epic’ story of the club.
The United Way, which comes out on DVD and Blu-ray on May 10 and launches on Sky Documentaries and NOW on May 24, will tell the tale of United and features a litany of club legends.
As always, Cantona is the star of the show as he narrates the film which will interweave his own story with that of the club’s ‘from the dark days of Munich through to a historic treble in 1999’ and everything in between.
The legendary Frenchman will be joined by a host of United greats in the documentary, with Class of 92 stars David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt sharing their own perspectives on the club’s history.
Current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will also feature alongside the likes of Bryan Robson, Peter Schmeichel, Teddy Sheringham, Norman Whiteside, Andy Cole, the late Tommy Docherty and many more.
The film aims to take audiences on a ‘compelling ride through the history and evolution of the world’s biggest football club, and the social and cultural environment that shaped it.’
As a result there will also be interviews with famous musicians and politicians synonymous with Manchester, with Manchester mayor Andy Burnham, Shaun Ryder of the Happy Mondays and Peter Hook of Joy Division and New Order taking part.
Mat Hodgson directs the Matthew Lorenzo Production which is set to the stirring score of five-time Oscar nominated, BAFTA-winning composer George Fenton.
