One Direction set for movie

One Direction

One Direction are set to star in a 3D film.

The British boyband - comprising of Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne - will star in a scripted comedy or documentary-style film, which will follow them promoting their hit album Up All Night.

According to sources, production will start on the film next year.

“It’s early days but it’s something that their management and label are excited about. It may be documentary footage mixed with a concert film, or it could even be a comedy caper in the style of old Monkees films," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

“All options are open, though they’re unlikely to get cracking on shooting it until next year.”

Band member Harry added that he can't wait for fans to see the five-piece in a different light.

"The film could be exciting. My hair would be poking in your eye," he shared.

Harry has previously expressed his interest in breaking into movies. The floppy-haired singer joked about their first choice of genre.

“Movies are something we would consider. But it would have to be what we want. We would love to do Romeo and Juliet, as depicted by One Direction, and we should play the parts — Niall would be Juliet!”
