Moss would be joining Michael Fassbender in the project based on the 2014 British soccer documentary directed by Mike Brett and Steve Jamison. That doc follows Dutch coach Thomas Rongen, who attempts the nearly impossible task of turning the American Samoa soccer team from perennial losers into winners. The pic made its world premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and won Best Documentary at the British Independent Film Awards that year.
