Not that anyone is surprised, but Becks is going to be in another movie. This is in addition to the sequels to 2005's Goal: The Dream Begins, one of which is already in cinemas in Europe. The film I am referring to is about the infamous WWI Christmas truce between the Limey's & the Krauts, creatively entitled "Truce". Do they give an Oscar for "most unoriginal yet highly revealing title"? If so these guys are gonna totally Jennifer Hudson that shit.
In other footballers-turned-actors-that-are-not-Vinnie Jones news, Gazza is going to make the leap from the pub screen to the big screen as well. He'll star and co-produce a film entitled "Final Run" in which he'll play a survivor of an alien invasion. But that's not the the truly horrific part.
The scary thing is that he's training with the SAS for the role. Can you imagine one of footballs more notorious drunks getting pissed up with a bunch of SAS squaddies? Shit would be epic. Never-ending France v. Italy cup final epic.
So while we are talking about films, what's your all-time favorite footie film? I'm putting my vote in for "Victory" starring Sly Stone (as the original American goalie in Europe), Pele, Osvaldo Ardiles, Michael Caine, & Bobby Moore.
