It will also give a glimpse into his life as a youngster including the divorce of his parents at the age of two.
The film has been a long time coming with the first plans initially drawn up in 2018.
But it appears the wheels are in full motion ahead of its anticipated release in September.
Ibrahimovic, 39, uploaded the trailer to his 48.3million Instagram followers alongside a movie poster.
The clip shows a series of different actors playing Ibra as a boy before going through the different stages of his life.
Mino Raiola, the superagent of Ibra, is played by actor Emmanuele Aita.
Filming reportedly took place in his native Sweden and Amsterdam, where he announced himself on the world stage with Ajax.
The film is an adaptation of his highly successful book ‘I, Ibra’ that was released in 2014.

The towering striker has enjoyed a remarkable career that has seen him play for nine different clubs including Juventus, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United.
Sweden’s record scorer, Ibrahimovic has won 11 league titles but his career didn’t come without controversies.
He reportedly headbutted a team-mate while at Malmo, punched Ajax team-mate Mido and had a high-profile falling out with boss Pep Guardiola at Barca.
It was claimed the hot-headed striker threw a training-kit box across the room and shouted insults at Guardiola.
He was then sent out on loan to AC Milan where he was involved in a training ground fight with Oguchi Onyewu.
