Well. Here’s something we never thought we’d been typing… David Beckham is going to be starring in a film about King Arthur and his smashing round table.

The retired soccer star has reportedly signed up for a part in his pal Guy Ritchie’s latest film – a Middle Ages epic called Knights Of The Roundtable: King Arthur, starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana and Poppy Delevingne. And ol’ Golden Balls will be joining the cast, and donning armour. That’s hot.

A source said: "There's going to be a version of the scene where Excalibur gets drawn from the stone. This is where Beckham factors in."

The 40 year old – who played for England as well as the clubs Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy during his successful career as a footballer – is unofficially credited on film database imdb.com as playing "Blackleg leader" in the movie, which began filming this week.


And according to the website, FilmDivider.com, "some football puns" were written into David's scene.

They added: "There's a little bit of a sense that Beckham's character, who fancies himself as a big player in this story, gets a little ticked off when this other fellow, this upstart, is the one who can free the sword."

David has previously worked with Guy in a short advert for H&M in 2013, and on a commercial for Becks’ Haig Whiskey.

The tattooed stud muffin – who has children Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, Cruz, 10, and three-year-old Harper with fashion designer wife Victoria Beckham – is also set to make a cameo in the Snatch director's new film,* The Man From U.N.C.L.E*, which is scheduled for release in August.
