Hollywood movie about Jamie Vardy appears to be one step closer

Earlier in the season, a rumour did the rounds that Jamie Vardy's rise from non-league to Premier League record breaker was due to be documented in a Hollywood film.

Unsurprisingly, plenty of people were quick to dismiss it - especially when some reports suggested that Zac Efron might end up playing the role of the Leicester striker.

But it seems anyone who doubted the idea that Vardy's tale could make it to the big screen may be proven wrong.

Adrian Butchart, the Hollywood screenwriter, was present at the King Power Stadium to witness Vardy's brace against Liverpool on Tuesday night.

Butchart was pictured with along with Vardy, his fiancée and agent after the game, and appears as keen as ever to make Vardy the movie a reality.
