David Beckham could be headed to the big screen following reports he has been offered a part in spy thriller The Secret Service.The footballer is said to be considering the cameo role in the comic-book movie, which will star Colin Firth and Sir Michael Caine and will be directed by Matthew Vaughn, reported The Sun.A source said: "Becks was asked by Colin Firth if he'd like to be in the movie but he is yet to fully commit."He loves movies and fancies appearing on the big screen - but just as a one-off, not a full-time career."The movie adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbon's graphic novel will see Colin play a veteran secret agent who enrols his nephew (Taron Egerton) into a British spy school.Emma Watson and Bella Heathcote are said to be in the running to take the female lead, although no formal talks have taken place, and Samuel L Jackson is tipped to play the villain.Beckham won't be the first athlete to take on a movie role though - click on to see more sports stars who've turned into movie stars...
