While Nolan‘s Dunkirk cast and crew are moving from France to a little village in Netherlands for a new month of shootings; Harry Styles can start to think to his next role.
Former 1D singer impressed with his acting skills Nolan‘s cast director John Papsidera, who cast Harry in Christopher Nolan’s World War II movie Dunkirk. Papsidera left a wonderful interview about Styles during Dunkirk shooting earlier this month.
“Harry was absolutely right for the role,” he told the Daily Mirror, “as an actor he is unknown, but his readings made him an obvious choice. We thought he was fresh and interesting and he won the role. It wasn’t because he’s a well known pop star – if anything that was more of a detriment, because it could bring the wrong message and we don’t want people pulled out of the film because of who they are. He fought hard for it and his work was impressive and that’s what attracted us to him. I don’t think he studied acting professionally and yet he won the role against some very well known actors.”
Now a new role seems to be ready for him. According to the Daily Star Harry got noticed by Hollywood while filming Dunkirk and it was noted he resembled Mick Jagger. We have been there for few days and as most of the people we have been really impressed by Harry Styles work and by his natural acting skills.
The 22- heartthrob is rumoured to be playing Jagger himself in a new film about the Rolling Stones.
The movie will chronicle the band’s 1972 double album Exile on Main Street which they recorded in France in a haze of drugs and alcohol. Following the release of their 1971 classic Sticky Fingers, the Rolling Stones left England for financial reasons. The band had reportedly spent the money they owed in taxes and left Britain to stay off the radar. They moved to the South of France, where Keith Richards rented his villa to his band mates and they used his basement as a recording studio.
Although Harry is only 22 and Mick was pushing 30 at the time of Exile there is definitely a strong resemblance between the two. And despite One Direction being much more clean living than the Stones, Harry can surely relate to some of Mick‘s charisma and fondness for the ladies.
The film will be directed by Downtown Abbey director Andy Goddard and will be titled Exile on Main Street: A season in hell.
