"Jermaine has already began working with the film company on the movie that will be loosely based on his life. It's early days yet but they would love Tyga to get involved as they think he looks like Jermaine with all the tattoos. There will be women, partying and scandals on and off the pitch. As a consultant on the film, Jermaine will be telling them real life stories from not just his life, but that of his A-list footballer pals too. It won't be for the faint-hearted," a source told the tabloid.
