American actor Samuel L. Jackson claims that producers are trying to get Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt to star in new film The Secret Service.

Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson is hopeful that producers will be able to convince Olympic champion Usain Bolt to appear in new film The Secret Service.

Director Matthew Vaughn is believed to be trying to recruit a number of stars, including retired footballer David Beckham, who is expected to play himself in the film.

"The world has changed in such an interesting way, fame is more important sometimes now than acting ability is in a certain way," BBC News quotes Jackson as saying.

"So that will be one of the unique aspects of this film, that there'll be people like David Beckham and hopefully Usain Bolt and other people that they have in the script."

The film is said to be based on Mark Millar's comic books.
