Global football superstar David Beckham is in talks with OTT platforms for a film on his life.

David Beckham is one of the biggest football stars on the planet. Beckham was on top of the game during his playing days and even after his retirement, his popularity has only soared.

Inspired by Netflix's Last Dance, a documentary series on basketball icon Michael Jordan, Beckham wants to have one of his own, according to The Sun.

The Sun has also quoted a source saying Beckham has wanted a film on his life for a while now and he is excited about it.

"The film will feature new content and archive footage. It's going to be about David's life post-football, especially the creation of his new team in Miami, but will have some personal content too.

He then moved to MLS to play for LA Galaxy, which brought the American soccer league in limelight. He ended his career in France at Paris Saint-Germain, winning the Ligue 1 title once.

For England, Beckham has the third most number of appearances and captained the national team for six years.
