Harry Styles turned down movie

2014-08-21 01:00

Los Angeles - Harry Styles turned down the chance to play Cara Delevigne's love interest in a movie.

The One Direction hunk - who was romantically linked with the British model last year - was offered a role in Harvey Weinstein's star-studded film Tulip Fever but had to turn down the part alongside Cara, Dame Judi Dench, Christoph Waltz and Zach Galifianakis because of his touring commitments with the band.

Harvey told MailOnline: "I offered Harry a role in Tulip Fever but he was touring so he had to turn it down.

"The part ended up going to Matthew Morrison and let me tell you this, the very first scene he shot was one of him kissing Cara Delevingne.

"So I'm sure Harry won't be turning be down the next role I offer him."

The movie mogul was disappointed the Little Things singer turned down his approach as he thinks he has huge potential to do well on the big screen.

He added: "He's like Errol Flynn, he's got that swashbuckling charm. Definite star potential. I think he'd be great. No question."

However, Harry isn't the only pop star who Harvey is looking to work with as the producer is planning a soundtrack to his new Broadway show Finding Neverland - which features music written by Gary Barlow - with an all-star line-up.

He said: "Gary and I and Rick Rubin are putting a concept album for the show together. We're talking to Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson. I'd love to get Ed Sheeran on there. Rick is talking to Pink. The songs will be arranged differently, like pop songs but it will tell the story of the musical."
