A featurette titled "Not Going to Fight" has also arrived from King Arthur.
While he had a filmed named after him, Bend it like Beckham, he did not appear in that film - a lookalike was used. That meant lots of training for Charlie Hunnam, but not for the reasons you might think. "Literally had to cover my eyes was so cringe", while John Peneveyre added: "Just heard a clip of Mr David Beckham in the new King Arthur film oh god it's cringe".
What we do know is that it's clearly not a poisoned chalice putting big name directors off, thanks to King Arthur director Guy Ritchie coming out to express his own interest in taking the gig.
And we were all prepared to play "spot the Beckham" among the many gnarled extras of Guy Ritchie's new film "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword", but we got it wrong, since Beckham has got a fully-fledged talking role.
Beckham said he enjoys the "challenge" of trying his hand at acting - but has no plans to take it up full time.
Guy Ritchie: "There's a awful danger of making someone look noble and thereby smug and once you're smug you lose any attractive quality that you could have accrued". And Guy said that's all well and good but I don't know what we're going to be shooting, so you better come ready to be a little bit more light on your feet, you know. Optimism is nowhere to be found in Ritchie's movie itself. Or was it all just a very loud dream?
David Beckham's film career has properly begun, with the very first clip of his performance, lines and all, in 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword' released today.
This is Beckham's second cameo in a Ritchie film as the ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder made a quick appearance in the director's 2015 film 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E'.
Did the world need another King Arthur movie? I have three projects set up at three, different studios.
Needless to say, we are absolutely thrilled at the prospect of a musical done in that high energy, frenetic Ritchie style.
