Rumors have it that Harry Styles will move from one band to another. The One Direction star is reportedly slated to play Mick Jagger in a Rolling Stones movie. This would mark Styles’ second big screen role after it was revealed in March that he was joining Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film.
NME reported a Rolling Stones movie is in the works based on a book by Rob Greenfield, with 22-year-old Styles playing one of the most iconic frontmen in the history of music. The film’s working title is Exile On Main Street: A Season In Hell With The Rolling Stones. NME citesThe Line of Best Fit, which reported the film will follow the making of the band’s classic album Exile On Main Street.
Exile On Main Street: A Season In Hell will reportedly be directed by Downton Abbey director Andy Goddard. NME reported filming hasn’t begun, despite the film having a winter release date.
Styles, who’s been compared to a young Jagger looks wise and beyond, is a huge fan of Jagger.
As previously mentioned, Styles has joined Nolan’s upcoming project, a World War II film titled Dunkirk starring Tom Hardy. Photos of Styles have emerged on the set of Dunkirk after cutting off his long locks for the role. He’ll have to grow his hair out again if he wants to play a young, shaggy-haired Jagger.
