It’s been confirmed that Chris will star alongside actor Vinnie in Rise Of The Footsoldier: Origins – the fifth film in the Rise Of The Footsoldier series.
Rise Of The Footsoldier is a British crime film that is based on the true story of the 1995 Rettendon murders – where three drug dealers were shot dead in a Range Rover – and the autobiography of Inter City Firm football hooligan Carlton Leach,
The new movie in the series will take the story back to the late 1980s and follows three men who unite to form their own football firm in Essex.
Vinnie, who is best known for starring in the likes of Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, will star in the movie as Bernard O’Mahoney – a man who was associated with one of the men murdered reports Screen Daily.
Other stars joining the cast include Keith Allen, as well as Terry Stone, Roland Manookian and Craig Fairbras, who all appeared in earlier movies in the franchise.
Chris confirmed news of his addition via his Instagram story.
It comes after the reality star was recently seen fronting his own BBC documentary on testicular cancer called Me, My Brother And Our Balls.
In the doc, Chris and his brother Ben are seen discussing the moment he underwent a live testicular examination on This Morning.
Chris was widely praised for doing so and Ben revealed that it had helped to save his life, as he later discovered he had testicular cancer.
He found a lump, after watching Chris’ examination, which doctors later found to be cancerous and he was able to have the testicle removed.
‘Essentially Chris going on This Morning saved my life,’ Ben, who is now cancer free, said.
‘Everything just happened so quickly,’ Chris recalled. ‘Ben went to get himself checked out and within the blink of an eye he was told it was cancerous after the ultrasound.’
