He's already conquered Hollywood – so why not the stage?

A British dramatist is in talks to bring David Beckham's life story – in musical form! – to London's West End.

"His rise from obscurity to international stardom, his universally acknowledged gifts as a supreme sportsman, and his Hollywood lifestyle all have the elements of an aspirational fable," librettist Mark Archer told the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph.

Archer is currently meeting with producers to discuss bringing his vision, David Beckham – The Theatre of Dreams, to the stage.

It would feature "powerful, gospel-like rock," Archer said. And, of course, Beckham's wife Victoria would make an appearance. Sample lyrics (upon meeting the Spice Girl):

A change has come around,
As I worship this ground,
With you in my life,
We're turning the world upside down.

In real life, Beckham has soccer – not singing – on his mind. He's preparing to play on England's national team in their August 20 match against the Czech Republic.
