Little details are known about the production, but Vernon tweeted: "Wow..Gonna be working with Steven Spielberg on a new film about the North West's impact on the cotton spinning industry!"
The Radio 1 DJ, who is being tipped to replace Bruce Forsyth as host of Strictly Come Dancing, added: "Today is a good day!"
