Patryk Vega (Pitbull, Women of Mafia) will make his English-language debut with a true-life mafia story about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s ascent to power.

The Vor in Law, a Russian mafia moniker comparable to “the godfather,” is the working title for the film, which will follow Putin from his humble origins in St. Petersburg “all the way to the conflict in Ukraine,” according to Vega.

Many people have made a parallel between Putin’s ties to organised crime while mayor of St. Petersburg in the chaotic post-Soviet era and the kleptocratic and authoritarian government he has established on the entire country as president.

Vega, whose Polish films have made over $100 million in the country, will fund the $12 million feature entirely through private equity investors. Next year, he hopes to film The Vor in Law in Poland, Lithuania, and Malta. Vega is searching for a U.S. or worldwide talent to play Putin, with the majority of the rest of the cast being European.

Vega has stated that his latest film Autobiografia (Invisible War), a drama based on his personal life, will be his last in Polish and that he will solely create films in English from now on. Vega claims that, despite his enormous financial success, he is not much regarded in his native country.

he said, “I get bad press because I’m the king of the box office,” added, “I can’t evolve further [in Poland]. I feel [working in English] is a natural progression in my career.”

Vega claims that his expertise creating films in Poland will give him an edge in the international market, “I can make a movie in 13 days for $300,000, I can make a movie on the same schedule, using the same cameras for 10 percent of an Australian budget, not even a Hollywood budget,” he added, “So I know what I can do with a $10 million budget.”
