Gazza stars in alien horror film
Paul Gascoigne
Paul Gascoigne is also helping produce the film Final Run
Ex-England and Newcastle United footballer Paul Gascoigne is to play the lead role in a new movie.

He will star in action-horror feature Final Run and will begin shooting the film alongside Lois Winstone, daughter of Ray Winstone, in the summer.

Billed as a cross between Black Hawk Down and Alien, the movie is set in the near future and follows the aftermath of an alien invasion of Earth.

Gazza plays a misguided survivor torn between his own future and humanity's.

The movie is being made by SJB Imperial Film and the former Glasgow Rangers, Middlesbrough and Tottenham favourite is also working as one of the film's producers.

It is hoped Final Run will be in cinemas in early 2008.
