According to The Sun, the Celebrity Big Brother star wants David Beckham cast in the role of Terry Brady, played in the original by Bobby Moore.
The original plot followed the story of Allied prisoners of war who take on a German football team while in a prison camp during World War II. It starred Sir Michael Caine and Sylvester Stallone, while footballers Pele, Ossie Ardiles and John Wark also made cameos.
"The original footballers' acting skills were so wooden they wouldn't have looked out of place in Ikea," said a source. "This time many players have acting experience and the producers reckon they can really make it work.
"Vinnie's already spoken to a few and some big names are keen to get involved. There's even talk of Caine and Sly getting cameo roles."
