Lukas Podolski to feature in German comedy movie Macho Man | inside World Soccer

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has revealed he will feature in a German comedy film called Macho Man and will play himself in it.

The 29-year-old has been in and out of the Arsenal team this season, leading to talk his spell in North London could be coming to an end.

And as the doubts over his future continue, the Germany international has taken time out to return to the stadium of former club FC Köln, to shoot some scenes for the movie.

"The film will be shot in my hometown Cologne, where I grew up and where my career started," Podolski said in a press release.

"My scene takes place in the stadium and it's really funny, I think.

"I am curious to see the result when I go to the premiere and see myself on the screen."

The movie, which is based on a best-selling novel by Moritz Netenjakob, is set to be released in October 2015.
