VIDEO: Beckham, Giggs and Scholes star in Manchester United Class of '92 film

A cinematic documentary, detailing the rise to prominence of some of the club's greatest idols, will debut in selected cinemas across the UK in December.

David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, and Paul Scholes will star in a documentary film released by Universal Pictures across UK cinemas next month.

The Class of '92, which also stars brothers Gary and Phil Neville, and Nicky Butt, tells the story of the rise through the youth ranks of some of Manchester United's greatest players in recent memory, culminating in the infamous 1999 treble-winning season.

Featuring interviews from Eric Cantona and Zinedine Zidane, the documentary looks at the bonds and relationships needed to succeed at one of the biggest clubs in world football.

"My time with these players at Manchester United were the most special in my career," said Beckham. "We came from different backgrounds, grew up like a family playing together through the ranks, all wanting to be successful.

"In the end, what we achieved was beyond our wildest dreams. I loved making this film and reuniting back with the lads and talking openly about our time together."

Giggs, the last remaining member from the class of '92 still playing for the club, says the chance to catch up with his old pals was too good to turn down.

“When we were approached to do this film, it gave me the chance to think back over all the events in not only my career but all of the lads involved," he said.

"Hopefully you’ll see how personal it is to us all. We’re still great mates and who would turn down the chance to make a movie with your best mates?”



The Class of '92
is directed by Ben and Gabe Turner, produced by Leo Pearlman, all of Fulwell 73 Productions, and executive produced by Patrick Holland of Boundless. The film will debut across selected UK cinemas from Sunday December 1.
