Former footballer and England national team captain, David Beckham, has made acting debut in a new classical movie “King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.”
The ex-international made cameo appearance in the trailer of the highly awaited blockbuster released on Tuesday ahead of the film’s premiere on May 19.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Beckham, who also played for Manchester United now appears to be turning his attention to acting.
The film — King Arthur: Legend of the Sword — is a 2017 fantasy film directed by Guy Ritchie and written by Ritchie, Joby Harold and Lionel Wigram.
It stars Charlie Hunnam as the title character, with Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey, Djimon Hounsou, ant others in supporting roles.
The plot follows a young ‘Arthur’ who runs the back streets of ‘Londinium’ with his crew, unaware of his royal lineage until he draws the sword ‘Excalibur’ from the stone.
Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to decide when to become involved with his power.
Arthur, however, had to learn to master the sword, face down his demons, unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern – who murdered his parents and stole his crown – to become king.
