Hollywood planning film based on Leicester City footballer Jamie Vardy's life.

Leicester City Footballer Jamie Vardy is set for super-stardom, with Hollywood bosses allegedly plotting a film about his meteoric rise to fame.

The 28 year old scored in his eleventh consecutive match this weekend, as LCFC took on Manchester United – securing Vardy with a new Premiere League record.

Reports claim Adrian Butchart, the screenwriter behind football movie Goal! wants to meet the player, with the hope of telling his story which saw him go from being a Sheffield factory worker earning £30 a week to a Premiership supremo.

Vardy’s success could earn him millions, with or without a film, as he is set to be poached by one of Europe’s biggest teams.
