He hopes that if he impresses in the part, that it could be the start of bagging much bigger roles on screen and launching his career into the spotlight.

A source revealed: “He’s not going down the route that many other people from Big Brother do by혻taking on numerous nightclub appearances and being pictured falling out of혻nightclubs drunk, he has much bigger plans than that.”

They added:혻“There’s lots of recognisable faces involved, including Mark Bannerman and혻Russian super model Gia Skova.

“He’s filming in both the UK and Paris and also in talk with another producer혻based in Hollywood.

“Jason’s a clever guy, he was a self made millionaire before entering Big혻Brother and he’s using the platform its given him very wisely.”

According to IMDb, Jason will be taking on the role of ‘The Fixer’ on the film,혻which follows the talk to a man who is trying to escape his troubled past by working in a bookshop before witnessing a violent crime.

Since leaving the Elstree compound at the end of July, Jason has been keeping himself busy with a series of personal appearances - and has remained in beautiful company with a gaggle of gorgeous women.

In the two months since being crown the champ, he has been spotted out and about with Celebrity Big Brother beauty Chloe Khan, who has since moved on to Ex on the Beach star Ashley Cain, as well as one of the Selfie Sisters.

A third woman, Star Delguidice, has since come forward and slammed the star as a "total sleazebag" after her potential romance with him fell sour quickly.

To top it all off he was then seen having a bottle thrown at his face by fellow Big Brother alumni Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace after a supposed lovers spat.
