The Jamie Vardy Movie

Oscar winners agree to make Jamie Vardy and Leicester box office film a reality

Leicester City icon Jamie Vardy will finally get his biopic made after Hollywood screenwriter and producer Adrian Butchart’s script got picked up by Oscar-winning producers

It was inevitable that Hollywood would take notice of Leicester City’s ‘fairy-tale’ Premier League triumph and turn it into a blockbuster movie.

The Foxes overcame 5000-1 odds to win the title, and Jamie Vardy broke Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record for goals in consecutive league games.

Leicester then built on that success this year, winning the FA Cup for the first time in the club’s history, but again missed out on a Champions League spot.

While the FA Cup is a dream come true for many Foxes fans, the script was written back in 2016, and focuses on the story of Vardy.

Its writer is Adrian Butchart, who penned the 2005 football film Goal!, focusing on Newcastle United, and its sequel.

The film will chronicle Vardy’s rise from non-league to Premier League winner, but will be a very dramatised recollection of events.

Butchart, an ardent Chelsea fan, has teamed up with Oscar-winning King's Speech producers Gareth Unwin and Simon Egan and the Fighter writers Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson on the project.

While it is unclear who will portray Vardy in the film, Butchart has spoken personally to the former England international about the project.

It awaits to be seen if Vardy’s recent successes will be included, having recently become the first player to play in in every round of the FA Cup, including its prelimary rounds.

The 34-year-old started his career at Stocksbridge Park Steels, having been released from Sheffield Wednesday as a youngster.

He subsequently played for fellow non-league sides Halifax Town and Fleetwood Town before getting a dream move to Leicester in 2012.

After an indifferent debut season at the King Power, Vardy scored 16 goals to fire the Foxes to the Premier League.

At freaking last, we've been waiting for it for the like 5 years I think? I just hope the begining of the movie is just them emphasing on how dominating the big 6 is in England, just to really make it clear for people who know nothing about football. Like having a recap of the last ten years winner through tv visioning or people listening to the radio while the name of the different people who worked on the film are shown.

Theres no such thing as a big 6. Its just the big 5 (Man utd, Arsenal, City, Chelsea, Liverpool) who have all won the premier league multiple times or once and finished top 4 in many seasons. Its beyond a joke that spurs get included when they haven't won the premier league and they've finished below top 4 for most seasons.

If people are including history then all the teams who are currently in the premier league who have won the league multiple times should be included alongside the big 5. Aston Villa held the most league title wins for longer than any team (over 50yrs). Everton etc etc.

Theres no such thing as a big 6. Spurs havent won the premier league. Its just the big 4 who have all won the premier league multiple times. Liverpool and definitely spurs should be excluded from it.

@Footy I could argue with you about that but it would really be a bit out of topic in this thread.
