Harry Styles Is Going to Star in a Queer '50s Love Story

The "Watermelon Sugar" singer is going to show off more of his acting chops.


More Harry Styles content coming our way soon?!? YES PLEASE! 

According to a report from Collider, the "Watermelon Sugar" and "Lights Up" singer is set to star in an upcoming film adaptation of English author Bethan Roberts' 2012 gay-themed novel My Policeman with producer Greg Berlanti at the helm! Harry's first major queer role! 

We don't know much about the project yet, but according to the novel's GoodReads page, My Policeman tells the tale of tragic love triangle (set in the '50s) between a policeman named Tom, his wife Marion, and Tom's paramour Patrick. 

"From the moment Marion first lays eyes on Tom — her best friend's big brother, broad, blond, blue-eyed — she is smitten," the book's description reads. "And when he comes home from National Service to be a policeman, Marion, a newly qualified teacher, is determined to win him. Unable to acknowledge the signs that something is amiss, she plunges into marriage, sure that her love is enough for both of them."

It continues: 

"But Tom has another life, another equally overpowering claim on his affections. Patrick, a curator at the Brighton Museum, is also besotted with his policeman, and opens Tom's eyes to a world previously unknown to him. But in an age when those of 'minority status' were condemned by society and the law, it is safer for this policeman to marry his teacher. The two lovers must share him, until one of them breaks and three lives are destroyed."

For all the stans who don't know, this isn't the first time Harry has put on his acting hat — and it won't be the last. He was one of the star's of Christopher Nolan's 2017 war flick Dunkirk, and just last week it was announced that he was also going to be a part of actor-turned-director Olivia Wilde's upcoming New Line thriller Don’t Worry Darling, alongside Oscar nominee and Little Women star Florence Pugh and Wonder Woman heartthrob Chris Pine! 

We can't wait to see what kind of magic Harry brings to the acting world, but if it's anything like what he has already done for pop music, then we know we're in for a treat!!
