Georges St-Pierre has a new opponent and it isn’t anyone in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. His new opponent will be Captain America. St-Pierre was just cast in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which is the sequel to “Captain America: The First Avenger.” The first film grossed more than $176 million to date.
The news of St-Pierre’s movie casting was first reported by Latino Review.
The UFC Welterweight Champion, who last defended his belt against Nick Diaz on March 16, will be playing villain French kickboxing master Georges Batroc, also known as Batroc the Leaper.
Although St-Pierre appeared in other movies that went straight to DVD, this will be his biggest movie gig. The film is set for release on April 2014 and will begin production soon. He will join Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson among others in the movie.Tags: Batroc the Leaper, Captain America, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Georges Batroc, georges st. pierre, gsp, MMA NEWS
