David Beckham is rumored to have scored a cameo role in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming “King Arthur” origin movie due out next year.
FilmDivider reports that Becks factors into the key scene of Excalibur getting drawn from the stone by Arthur (Charlie Hunnam). In the film, his character is a disgruntled knight who “gets a little ticked off when this other fellow, this upstart, is the one who can free the sword.”
In fact they claim the scene even features some football puns which suggests a pop culture-centric take on the Arthurian legend than the more regal and serious-faced previous takes.
Ritchie’s Arthur film is currently in production ahead of a release next year.
