Danny Boyle's next venture to star Ed Sheeran in lead role
The singer while talking to media shared, “And then I discover him and take him on tour. Then he gets much, much bigger than me through doing stuff. Yeah, it’s very clever,
He further added that" I got to actually kind of learn how to act. … With the Game of Thrones thing, that was literally me popping in for a day and making a cameo. Or Bastard Executioner was me popping in for a day. But this was like full days on set, like full 12-hour days.”
Sheeran completed his part of production earlier this year, in the middle of his latest tour. The as-yet-untitled movie is set for release in September 2019.
“They shot it around loads of my gigs. So it was a very intense two months. Because I would have four days of gigging and then three days of shooting a film,” Sheeran said. “I was playing myself, so I don’t think I was that bad. There wasn’t much to (mess) up.”
The 27-year-old British pop star says his long-term goal in Hollywood is to make a movie musical in the vein of the 2007 Irish romance Once.
“I want to make something like that. Something like that where songs dictate the film in a way,” he said. “I can’t see myself playing an Avenger, you know? I don’t really want to be an actor.”
Sheeran declined to answer any questions about lawsuits alleging he improperly copied other artists’ work in his hit Thinking Out Loud and in a song he wrote for Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.
“I really can’t talk about that,” he said. “After they’re done, I will talk about it.”
