Hollywood beckons! Leicester ace Vardy wanted by movie mogul

Published on: 30 November 2015

Hollywood are eyeing Leicester City sensation Jamie Vardy!

Against Manchester United, Vardy entered the record books with his 11th goal in consecutive Premier League games.

The Sun says screenwriter Adrian Butchart, who was responsible for football films Goal!, is set to hold meetings in Tinseltown this week.

He said: "It's the kind of story that if we made it up, people wouldn't believe it.

“His achievements are incredible and to break the Premier League record with such a sublime goal against the biggest club in football pushed him to the top of our agenda.

“It's amazing to think he was playing non league football and making medical splints for a living until so recently before breaking the record. It is the kind of role actors dream of."

It is suggested filmmakers see similar potential in Vardy's tale as the Goal films, with the likes of Robert Pattinson, Andrew Garfield and Zac Efron linked with playing the striker.
