David Beckham may be heading to the big screen.

The 38-year-old former soccer player is reportedly being eyed for a role in the upcoming film "The Secret Service." Due out in 2014, "The Secret Service" is lead by director Matthew Vaughn ("Kick-Ass") and will star Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Firth, Michael Caine, and Taron Egerton.

Beckham has reportedly been approached for a role in the film, an adaptation of Dave Gibbons and Mark Millar's graphic novel of the same name.

"Becks was asked by Colin Firth if he'd like to be in the movie but he is yet to fully commit," an unnamed source told The Sun. "He loves movies and fancies appearing on the big screen - but just as a one-off, not a full-time career."

"The Secret Service" is also rumored to include a cameo by Elton John. Beckham has yet to comment on the possibility of his appearance in the film.
