Harry Styles set to star in adaptation of queer love story My Policeman

The actor/musician is in final negotiations to star across from Lily James in the film version of Bethan Roberts’ novel

Just last week it was announced that Harry Styles will be replacing Shia LaBeouf in Olivia Wilde’s upcoming Don’t Worry, Darling, a psychological thriller set in the California of the 1950s.

In case that isn’t enough Harry-Styles-in-the-1950s content for you though (and let’s be real, can you ever get enough?) the musician-slash-actor is now in final negotiations to star in an adaptation of My Policeman, based on Bethan Roberts’ 2012 novel of the same name.

As reported by Collider, Lily James – of Baby Driver and Little Woods – is also slated to star as the female lead in the queer love story. 

Specifically, the story revolves around a love triangle between a museum curator named Patrick, a policeman (obviously) named Tom, and Marion, the schoolteacher Tom’s married to. Though Tom is in love with Patrick, the setting – Brighton in the 1950s – means it’s too dangerous to share their love publicly, and things come to a head when one of his two lovers can’t take “sharing” him any more.

The male co-star of Styles and James is yet to be cast in the Amazon Studios production, which is expected to begin next summer.
