Former England, Manchester United and Real Madrid great, David Beckham, who is potentially in line for a knighthood for his services to football, is in line to cameo as a disgruntled knight who fails to extract excalibur from the stone in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming King Arthur film, reports Film Divider.
Ritchie has said to have seasoned the ‘King Arthur’ story with pop culture quirks and tinges, and Beckham’s presence illustrates that. Film Divider have also reported that Ritchie will be including explicit and relatable football puns in Beckham’s scene. The pair previously worked together on an H&M commercial in 2013, in which Beckham loses the majority of his clothes and hilariously attempts to retrieve them whilst running around an upmarket resort.
King Arthur: Knights of the Round Table, is said to be the first of six films starring Charlie Hunnam as the king himself, Astrid Berges-Frisbey as Guinevere, Eric Bana as Uther Pendragon, Djimon Hounsou as Bedivere and Jude Law as villain Vortigen. Warner Bros. are yet to confirm whether Film Divider’s reports are true, but with this news developing, they will surely comment on its validity very soon.
