Jamie Vardy tips James Corden to play him in Hollywood film

Although the season's still in its early weeks, it's already looking like it's going to be tall order for Leicester City to retain their title.

The Foxes have dropped 13 points from their opening seven matches and sit 12th in the league as we head into the international break.


Thankfully, there's still plenty for Leicester supporters to look forward to.

There's the Champions League, for example... Having taken maximum points from their opening two group matches, Claudio Ranieri's side are on course to make it to the competition's knock out stages.

Slightly longer term, there's also the prospect of reliving their title-winning season in the cinema as plans take shape for a film about the club's miraculous 2015/16.

We've been hearing for a while now that a film about free-scoring Jamie Vardy's role in Leicester's title triumph is in the offing, and according to the man himself, things appear to be moving swiftly.

"From what I've heard, the script is nearly finished, so now they have to get a director in and hire all the actors," he told BBC Breakfast.

As for which actor ends up playing the lead role, nothing is certain yet. We've seem tabloid talk of the likes of Zac Efron playing the the England striker on the big screen, and Will Ferrell threw his hat into the ring during Leicester's preseason tour of the US in the summer.

Asked who he thought might do a decent job, Vardy suggested James Corden might fancy taking the role on.


"I'm not sure but, watching him the other night, I think James Corden could do a good job. He's a funny guy as well, so could make it very enjoyable."

If the host of The Late, Late Show can find a bit of time in his hectic schedule, perhaps he's the man to fill Vardy's on-screen boots.

Yet another snub for the man born to play the role.
