Big hitters are committing to a box office film about Leicester and Jamie Vardy despite their final day reverse.

The Foxes missed out on the top four and the Champions League on the last day for the second successive season.

A 4-2 home loss to Spurs saw Vardy and Co end fifth after being in the top four for 242 days this term.

But the side paraded the FA Cup after the final whistle amid memorable scenes at the King Power Stadium with fans back.

Behind the scenes plans for a box office movie about Leicester and former non-league striker Vardy continue.

LA-based Brit Adrian Butchart , a producer and writer , has agreed to make the movie with the Oscar-winning producers of The King’s Speech Gareth-Ellis Unwin and Simon Egan and their company Bedlam Productions.

Fellow Oscar nominated duo Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson, who wrote The Fighter, will also be involved scripting it.

Butchart wants to make another football movie after writing the scripts for the first two films in the ‘Goal’ trilogy.

He has since held talks with Vardy after his incredible rise from factory worker to Premier League title winner in 2016.

The star added another fairytale after lifting the FA Cup by beating Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley courtesy of Youri Tielemans’ screamer.
