Actor Mickey Rourke, who is working to adapt the life of gay rugby player Gareth Thomas for the big screen, is set to watch one of his games this Sunday in Wales.

Rourke plans to play Thomas, one of Wales's top rugby players, who came out in late 2009.

Thomas said Rourke would attend the opening round of the Engage Super League at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Contact Music reports.

Thomas said of the actor, who also wants to direct the film, "I speak to him quite a lot and I've met him a few times but lately he's appreciated that I've been in pre-season and he's done his talking through the writer, who has been with me for the last four weeks, understanding a rugby player and what he goes through on and off the field."
