Leicester’s Danny Drinkwater wants Jason Statham to play his role in Jamie Vardy film
Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater has expressed his desire for British action star Jason Statham to portray him in an upcoming film about his teammate Jamie Vardy’s life. Drinkwater is a good friend of Vardy and hopes that the film will turn out well. He thinks that Statham is a suitable choice to play him because he is English and a talented actor, and his partner, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, is stunning.
The film is expected to tell the story of Vardy’s journey from non-league football to becoming a Premier League star. Screenwriter Adrian Butchart has been hired to pen the script for the film, and it is believed that Vardy and his fiance Becky Nicholson are keen to be involved in the project.
Nicholson recently revealed that they have been “throwing themselves out there” for filmmakers and are prepared to be completely transparent about their lives. She acknowledged that the film is the most surreal element of their involvement in the project, but she is excited to see Vardy’s story brought to the big screen.
Overall, it appears that the Leicester City team is excited about the film and the potential to share their stories with a wider audience. While the casting decisions have yet to be finalized, Drinkwater’s endorsement of Statham as his ideal choice to play him is certainly intriguing.
