Coleen Rooney in talks for £1 million deal to make Rebekah Vardy film

Coleen Rooney is reportedly in talks to sign a "£1 million deal" for a new documentary-style film about Rebekah Vardy.

The 35 year old mum-of-four is being sued for libel by Rebekah after she claimed the 39-year-old's Instagram account was responsible for stories about her leaking to the press.

The duo, who were once close friends, have been in a bitter feud ever since and now, according to reports, Coleen is determined to "let the public make their own minds up".

She is slated to present all of her evidence claiming Rebekah had sold stories about her to the media, in a documentary film that could start filming in the new year.

The libel trial will begin at the High Court in the summer, but it's not clear whether the film would be shown before, during or after the case.

It comes as Rebekah's husband Jamie is due to have his devices searched as part of the case.

"Coleen has remained quiet ever since that famous online post," a friend of hers is quoted as telling The Mirror. "But this could all change in what could be the TV event of the year.

"Viewers would see all the evidence that Coleen has forensically gathered via her online sleuthing and see why she is convinced that Rebekah leaked the stories about her and others.

"She is minded to get it all out into the pubic domain and let people make their own minds up. Talks are very well advanced," the insider continued.

The source also reportedly told the publication that Coleen has been thinking "long and hard" about how to proceed following her dramatic feud with Rebekah, who is married to footballer Jamie Vardy.

Claiming she thinks the timing is finally right to emerge into the spotlight, the friend added that Coleen feels she "has a very strong case" and as a result wants to "share it" with the world.

OK! has contacted representatives for Coleen and Rebekah for comment.

Lorton Entertainment are also reportedly in "very advanced talks" to produce Coleen's film, and the company are also making her husband Wayne Rooney's documentary.

The film could be streamed on Netflix or Amazon, and would join the likes of Lorton Entertainment's hugely-popular Oasis doc Supersonic.

Coleen and Rebekah's fall-out began in October 2019 when the former first posted accusations of leaks about her private life.

While the loser of the libel case could end up shelling out millions, at this stage Coleen’s lawyers say her legal bill will be £537,000.

Rebekah’s is estimated to be £838,000, and the judge has urged both women to come to a resolution outside of the court.

Both Coleen and Rebekah are refusing to back down and will appear at the trial next summer.
