Wait a minute… Harry Styles, the actor? It may be coming sooner than you think. He’s actually in the running for Christopher Nolan’s next movie about World War II — alongside Tom Hardy. Talk about star power!
Stars go from music to movies all the time — and it looks like Harry Styles may be next. He was actually just offered a role by Christopher Nolan — yes, the Christopher Nolan — in his next film, Dunkirk. The movie’s details have been kept very quite but our sister publication, Deadline just revealed that many sources have confirmed that the One Direction hottie was offered a non-lead role. Will he take it? And should he?
The Wrap also reported that new actor, Fionn Whitehead, is in the running to play one of the two young leads as well, so maybe they’re up against each other?
We don’t know much about the movie yet, but under Christopher Nolan, it’s bound to be a hit. He’s already cast Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, who just won an Oscar and Tom Hardy. This will be Tom’s third movie with Nolan! Composer Hans Zimmer will also work on this film — he also did The Dark Knight, Inception and Interstellar.
Harry is also rumored to be joining season two of Ryan Murphy‘s Scream Queens. Lea Michele, a lead on the show even heard it! “I don’t know if this is true, but he said at a press thing recently that he is talking to a male pop star to come for next year,” she told InStyle. “If it’s Harry Styles, everybody better calm down. I love One Direction. Everybody knows this. I’m also thinking that he should be in the Wicked movie. He’s our modern day Mick Jagger.”
In the past, Harry was offered a role in Tulip Fever by Harvey Weinstein but he turned it down. So, maybe since 1D is officially on a hiatus, he’ll now head to movies? We’re fine with it. However, one request for Nolan: please don’t make him shave his head.
