Harry Styles is tied into One Direction for two more years at least, however when his contract comes to an end it’s thought the star may move into the film industry.
Harry has been spending a LOT of time in LA this year and last week he was spotted at Harvey Weinstein’s massive pre-oscar bash in Hollywood, rubbing shoulders with all the right people in the business.
Much was made of the fact that the Little Things singer was reunited with his ex girlfriend Taylor Swift at the event, however it sounds like some of the other meetings were much more interesting.
Harvey – the man behind movies such as Cold Mountain, Silver Linings Playbook, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and more – told The Sun that he’s keen to make Styles a Hollywood star, though he teased that he’ll have to date all three of his daughters first.
However it sounds like Universal Pictures are also planning to make a pitch for the British singer, as it’s been reported he’s being considered for a role in the new film version of hit stage show Wicked.
Insiders say Styles is being looked at for the lead role of Fiyero, the handsome prince. An insider said:
“Harry is very focused on his singing career but there’s a real buzz about him. Movie makers see him as a new Zac Efron and think he would be a perfect casting for a movie musical.”
We reported earlier this week that Harry is tied into his current SYCO contract for three more albums and until at least 2016. To leave the band before then would lead to him incurring massive financial penalties.
Meanwhile, it seems that Niall Horan hasn’t fully recovered from his knee surgery yet.
The star revealed on Saturday that he’d got the all clear from doctors and was finally off his crutches but last night he shared a picture with fans, which showed that he still needs to ice his joint.
Horan uploaded a photo to Instagram which showed him relaxing in front of the TV with a new piece of recovery kit on his leg. He captioned it:
“Watching TV with my game ready on icing my leg! Best piece of kit I have ever purchased!”
“@gamereadyuk what a piece of kit you produce ! Helped so much since my knee op!”
“Graham Norton show was very funny tonight! Off t bed now! Chat tomorrow! Love you all xx night night”
