Ed Sheeran to star in new Beatles-related film

Ed Sheeran to star in new Beatles-related film

Before he nearly certainly embarks on filming James Bond 25, with production on that set to start at the end of the year, Danny Boyle will be shooting his thus-far untitled musical comedy.

Sheeran has previously appeared in The Simpsons, Game of Thrones, Bridget Jones' Baby, Home and Away, and The Bastard Executioner. "If anyone can make a film about the Beatles' songs even better musically, it's him".

Deadline's report comes a day after the Daily Mail published an article claiming that Sheeran is in talks for a Richard Curtis film "about a man who wakes up one day to find he is the only person who can remember the songs of The Beatles". The news comes from the pages of the Daily Mail in the United Kingdom, who say that Sheeran is set to play the new comedy - tentatively titled All You Need Is Love.

The prosecution argued that the girl was taken to Shankar's house on July 10, 2013, for treatment of her backache through "jhada" ( witchcraft ).

Sheeran is also friends with director Curtis, whose previous films include Love Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral, and his partner Emma Freud. Himesh Patel (BBC's EastEnders, Damned) and Kate McKinnon (TV's Saturday Night Live, The Spy Who Dumped Me).

Deadline was more reserved on the news, just confirming that Sheeran was "in talks to make an appearance in Danny Boyle's upcoming music-themed comedy movie". He has performed Beatles tributes in the past, so it would be in his wheelhouse. There is now no other major release scheduled for that date, although it will be competing against the second week of IT: Chapter Two, which opens September 6, 2019.
