Not sure how picky you are about having the arguments expanded, but
something like the following (by no means fully debugged) would work
if you don't mind the arguments being at the end.

So run "fline blahblah -o2 -o2 -o3"


fline() {
emulate -L zsh
setopt extendedglob

# In case not yet loaded
local func=$1

case $functions[$func] in
  print "Function \`$func' is not defined" >&2
  return 1

  ("builtin autoload "[^$'\n']#)
  autoload +X $func

local -a args=("() {
}"  ${(Q)argv})

print -z "$args"
