Los Angeles - Shane Warne and Elizabeth Hurley's lives are to be made into a movie.

The former cricketer's sporting exploits are reportedly set to be the focus of a new TV film and his off-field romance with the Bedazzled actress would also feature heavily in the project.

Australia's Channel 9 are planning the movie - which could also be exported over to the UK - following on from the success of Howzat!, a miniseries loosely based on Shane.

The sequel to Howzat! is being fast-tracked and casting will soon be underway to find stars to play Shane, Elizabeth and the sportsman's ex-wife Simone Callahan, with who he has children Brooke, 14, Summer, ten, and 13-year-old Jackson.

One casting agent told Australia's Daily Telegraph newspaper: "From a casting perspective, there's a huge amount of potential there.

"But finding the right actors is key because these are characters that much of the Australian public have grown up with."

Names in the frame include Eddie Perfect, who played Shane in the stage production of Shane Warne: The Musical, Zoe Tuckwell-Smith and Madeline West for Simone and former Neighbours star Nicola Charles as Elizabeth.
