In his second announcement of starring in a 1950s-era movie in the past two weeks, Harry Styles is in negotiations to star alongside Lily James in a film adaptation of My Policeman, the LGBTQ+ novel by Bethan Roberts.

Pending negotiations, James will play Marion, a schoolteacher who falls for Styles’ character Tom, a policeman in Brighton, England. However, when Tom meets museum curator Patrick and falls in love, difficult decisions for all three lie ahead in a time where same-sex relationships are illegal. Marion and Patrick are forced to share Tom, but before long, one of them cracks under pressure and all three have their lives permanently changed.

 

The film is currently untitled, and has been acquired by Amazon Studios. It will be directed by Michael Grandage and adapted for the screen by Oscar-nominated writer Ron Nyswaner.

 

Styles was also recently announced to be starring alongside Florence Pugh, Dakota Johnson, and Chris Pine in Olivia Wilde’s 1950s thriller Don’t Worry Darling, his first film since debuting in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk
