Hollywood actor Tom Cruise says he wants to make a movie with soccer ace David Beckham.

"I'd love to do action movies with Beckham. He would be great, he could kick ass. David would have to teach me to play soccer first," contactmusic.com quoted Cruise as saying.

"David has been linked with Hollywood a number of times but Tom is the only one he'd ever take up, he thinks Tom is a legend," said a source.
