WAYNE Rooney has filmed a biopic celebrating his 20-year career in football — including some of his off-pitch exploits.
The ex-England captain, 35, has done a series of interviews alongside wife Coleen, 34, for the Bafta-winning team behind the Amy Winehouse and Ayrton Senna documentaries.

Unseen footage, as well as some of Wayne’s most memorable goals and footballing highlights, will be shown.
It will also go into detail on the ups and downs of his life — both personal and professional.
A production insider said: “It’s going to be a wonderfully powerful and inspiring look at Wayne’s career — how he went from unknown boy wonder to national captain, and England’s greatest- ever goal scorer.
“But it also offers a rarely seen look at the man behind the player. He will likely be asked about marital mistakes he’s made in the past, drink driving, and the time he was arrested in the US.

“It is made clear he’s a fantastic dad, and loving husband — but he holds his hands up to previous lapses in judgement. Wayne will, of course, also have a say in what gets signed off.”
The film is subject to a bidding deal between Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Wayne’s spokesman said last night: “No decisions have yet been made on what content is or isn’t part of the movie, so people will just have to wait until its release.”
