The Royle Family star is due to return as the main character in the football-themed cult classic in Mike Bassett: Interim Manager, which begins filming next year.
Tomlinson is keen to get a number of cameo appearances from players and ex-players, including former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher.
"I think I could have a laugh with Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard because they're local lads and we've got a lot in common," Tomlinson told the Daily Star.
"Even maybe Jamie Carragher because he's just retired and he's a football pundit now isn't he? I think you'll see a lot of cameos."
In the sequel, Bassett will return as assistant boss to the new England manager.
