Harry Styles of One Direction has just landed his very first role as an actor in an actual acting gig.
Ever since One Direction was formed back in 2010 Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan have become millionaires and the main subject of tons of screaming teenage girls all over the world. Now that the band is on a hiatus and Malik has gone on to focus on his solo career the rest of the English musicians are all focusing on various aspects of their lives. For Harry Styles this means giving acting a shot.
According to official reports, the 22 year old Brit has just landed an acting gig and it will be his very first role as an actor. The role in question is still yet to be announced, but the project has already been named. Styles will appear next to famous British movie stars like Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy and Kenneth Branagh in a drama about World War II, entitled Dunkirk. The movie will be written and directed by Christopher Nolan and as you probably might have already guessed, it will be centered around the Dunkirk evacuation. It has been reported that Hans Zimmer will compose the soundtrack for the movie and that it will be distributed by Warner Bros.
This is the first acting role for Harry Styles, but two of his band mates have already starred in movie productions. Louis Tomlinson starred in a thriller from 2006, entitled If I Had You, and lent his voice for an episode of Family Guy, which aired earlier in March this year. Liam Payne also starred as a voice-over actor in the same episode alongside Tomlinson, Seth MacFarlane, Mila Kunis, Mike Henry, Seth Green and Alex Borstein.
