Harry Styles reportedly set to star in LGBTQ+ romance film 'The Policeman'

scandal 21/09/2020

Harry Styles is reportedly in negotiations to star in an onscreen adaptation of My Policeman, an award winning 1950s-set queer love story written by Bethan Roberts. 

The film, directed by Tony-Award-winner Michael Grandage, is set in Brighton, England, at a time where homosexuality was illegal. The story follows a policeman (Styles) who finds himself in a love triangle between a school teacher and a museum curator, who subsequently are forced to share his love. (Yes - meaning a throuple.)

Styles is yet to confirm his involvement in the film, but was photographed earlier in the year with a copy of the book, so we've got a good feeling about this. 

It has also been reported that Lily James is in talks to play the lead female role - Marion the museum curator. Although, this is all just speculation at this point. 

But we gotta say, we hope this all comes true 😍
