Carter announces next off-field move


Dan Carter announces next big off-field move

Former All Blacks first-five Dan Carter has announced his next big move off the rugby field – a movie.

The 36-year-old first-five, who still plies his trade for Kobe Steelers in the Japanese Top League, announced on social media on Tuesday that he will be releasing a feature film in August.

“Excited to share with you guys about a project I’ve been working on over the past 12 months,” Carter posted on Facebook and Instagram.

“A film will be coming out which gives a deep insight into my personal life, my career and particularly my challenging road to the 2015 Rugby World Cup. It will be in cinemas in New Zealand on August 29 and I’ll be sure to share the details for my international friends soon! Official title and trailer to come.”

Carter isn’t the first All Black to be the subject of a feature film on the big screens.

Chasing Great, which documented the storied career and success of ex-All Blacks captain Richie McCaw leading into the 2015 World Cup, was released in 2016, while cult hero Stephen Donald was the subject of The Kick, a television movie based on his unlikely World Cup-winning heroics in 2011.

His upcoming movie also isn’t the first venture off the rugby field that Carter has looked into throughout his 16-year professional rugby career.

In 2017, Carter’s jointly-owned investment business with former Crusaders player Ben Hurst – 910 Limited – bought a 10 percent share in start-up business Laundromap, which provides an on-demand dry cleaning delivery service.

Elsewhere, he, McCaw and current All Blacks captain Kieran Read have invested in a retirement village in Christchurch, while earlier in his career, Carter half-owned a chain of four GAS Clothing stores across New Zealand, which sold the upmarket Italian clothing brand exclusively before folding in 2010.

Carter is currently recovering from a neck injury which prevented him from signing a lucrative short-term deal with his former Top 14 club Racing Metro earlier this year, and is expected to return to action in the Top League next year.
