Ed Sheeran To Star In New Beatles Movie?

Ed Sheeran in Talks for Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis Film

Hit recording artist Ed Sheeran is poised to make a more significant jump into the acting world, and the project couldn't be more ideal. It's certainly a trippy premise, if the news from the Daily Mail can be believed.

The British superstar musician, Ed Sheeran, is now said by a British tabloid to be in talks to star in Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis's upcoming untitled musical comedy. Sheeran will apparently write new songs, while tracks from the legendary British group will also feature in the film. Then again, their "source" also said, "Everything Ed touches turns to gold".

"He is the biggest hit-maker on the planet".

Initial word of Sheeran's involvement comes courtesy of Deadline, where it's reported that the now untitled comedy project - written by Love Actually's Richard Curtis - has already rounded up a cast that includes Lily James, Kate McKinnon and Himish Patel. "If anyone can make a film about the Beatles' songs even better musically, it's him". Most plot details are being kept under wraps, but it will be music-themed and set in the 1960s or '70s.

"Cindererlla" beauty Lily James will star as a teacher in the as-yet-untitled film, thought to be set in the 60s or 70s, whilst "EastEnders" actor Himesh Patel is on board to play the male lead. Kate McKinnon (Ghostbusters, Saturday Night Live) is also in talks to join.
