LATEST: ENGLAND soccer superstars David Beckham and ALAN SHEARER are to team up for director Michael Winterbottom's new FOOTBALL movie.

The athletes are among the real-life players who will make actors DIEGO LUNA and Stuart Townsend look like professionals in the new project, which is being filmed this summer at Newcastle, England's ST JAMES' PARK.

Townsend will play a hotshot soccer star who is charged with taking care of Mexican hero Luna when he starts playing soccer in England.

Winterbottom is hoping to make two movies out of the project, and both will be released in 2005.
