Julian Jarrold is in discussions to direct One Chance, a film about the life of Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts.

The Becoming Jane helmer is close to making a deal to direct the movie for producers Simon Cowell, Brad Weston, Mike Menchel and studio Paramount.

Matthew Vaughn, the filmmaker behind Layer Cake, Stardust and the forthcoming Kick-Ass, is expected to help fund the project through his Marv Films company, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Justin Zackham is writing One Chance, which will show how Potts, a former mobile phone salesman, made one final attempt to become a professional opera singer by entering an ITV talent contest.

Potts won the show and became a worldwide phenomenon when a video of his audition was uploaded onto YouTube.
