Leicester City's Jamie Vardy could have his story turned into a Hollywood film

Jamie Vardy

Admit it, you'd all go and see it and buy the DVD for the deleted WKD slamming scenes.

Just when the think Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy's season might have peaked, he goes and does something even more impressive.

At the start of the season, not many would've fancied him or Leicester to be in some seriously hot form, but we're almost into December and neither seem to be losing pace.

And Vardy made some history for himself during the Foxes' 1-1 draw with Louis van Gaal's Manchester United on Saturday evening. 

The 28-year-old scored Leicester his in his 11 consecutive game, beating former Red Devils striker, Ruud van Nistelrooy's 13-year record. 

Not bad for a lad who was working in a factory just a few years ago – he's basically the footballing equivalent of Rocky... right?

And Everyone loves Rocky, so naturally Hollywood is looking to cash in Jamie Vardy's incredible story. It turns out that the writer of 'Goal!', Adrian Butchart, is all other Vardy's story, and told the Sun: "It’s the kind of story that if we made it up, people wouldn’t believe it.

"His achievements are incredible and to break the Premier League record with such a sublime goal against the biggest club in football pushed him to the top of our agenda."

And the Sun's report suggest that there are two candidates who could play the striker... Robert Pattinson or Zac Efron! We cannot wait for this Vardy film, especially the scene where he takes to Facebook to post 'chat sh*t, get banged'.

Who do you think should play Jamie Vardy if a film is made?
