Harry Styles ‘respectfully declined’ this HUGE opportunity
But after a long-anticipated confirmation, it turns out that Mr Styles is not set to being going ‘under the sea’ after all.
A source close to the production team revealed that although the former One Direction star ‘is a fan of the project’ he ‘respectfully declined’ the opportunity.
And just like that Directioners across the world were left heartbroken.
Most recently the 25-year-old superstar was in the running to play Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming biopic but was pipped to the post by American actor, Austin Butler.
Harry is also thought to be filming music videos for his new album HS2, following the success of his self-titled debut album, alongside fronting the latest Gucci campaign for their first unisex fragrance – Gucci Mémoire d’une Odeur.
He first shot to fame in 2010 when at just 16 he appeared on The X Factor, where he met bandmates, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik, later forming One Direction and becoming one of the biggest boybands of this century.
Let’s hope we see Harry on our screens very soon!
