Victoria Beckham is reportedly set to star in the big screen remake of '80s soap 'Dynasty'.
The former Spice Girl is being lined up to play super-bitch Alexis - a role made famous by Joan Collins - in the Hollywood version of the classic show.
The brunette beauty, who is married to football ace David Beckham, is said to have won the role after her A-list pals Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes recommended her to 'Dynasty' creator Aaron Spelling.
Film bosses reportedly think the slender singer has the "British style and sass" needed for the film, which is about a wealthy Denver oil family.
An insider told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "The casting crew wanted someone British, glamorous and also slightly aloof.
"Elizabeth Hurley was suggested, but at 40 she's slightly too old for the role."
'Dukes of Hazzard' beauty Jessica Simpson and actor Bruce Willis have also been hotly-tipped to star in the new film.
