Vinnie Jones is enlisting soccer stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and David Beckham for a remake of 'Escape to Victory', the 1981 cult classic movie -directed by John Huston- featuring former soccer aces Pelé, Bobby Moore and Oscar Ardiles

Sir Michael Caine and Sylvester Stallone also starred in the original movie – known only as ‘Victory’ in North America - which told the story of a group of allied prisoners of war escaping a German prison camp in World War II.

Discussing his plans previously, Vinnie Jones said there were “lots of players” potentially up for parts in the project. “It's a three-year process, minimum. We've got stuff going on. We're trying to produce a remake of 'Escape to Victory' - we've got a lot of players involved but it takes a while to get things going here."
