Harry Styles in ‘My Policeman’ movie: everything you need to know
Stop crying … because another Harry Styles the film is on the way.
After making her big screen debut in 2017 Dunkirk and packaging Don’t worry darling in February 2021, the singer of “Watermelon Sugar” is working hard on his next film, My policeman.
First announced in September 2020, the film will star Styles as Tom Burgess, the incumbent police officer who marries a woman named Marion (Emma Corrin) while maintaining a relationship with a museum curator named Patrick Hazelwood (David Dawson).
Based on the novel of the same name by Bethan roberts, My policeman is a period play that takes place in both the 1950s and 1990s. The former member of One Direction will play young Tom, while Linus Roache will assume the role for the final years of history.
Styles has yet to speak publicly about his role in the film, but Dunkirk clearly gave him the acting bug – and impressed film industry veterans as well.
Christopher Nolan, who led Dunkirk, said he didn’t know “how famous” the Gucci spokesperson was when he hired him for the film, but was impressed with his performance. “The truth is, I chose Harry because he fit the role wonderfully and really deserved a seat at the table,” the Oscar winner told the Associated press in 2017.
Veteran actor Mark Rylance, who starred alongside Styles in Dunkirk, had nothing but positive things to say about her co-star during the press tour. “What really surprised me is that he’s really witty, really funny – he really makes me laugh,” he told the Evening standard in 2016. “It seems remarkable… one of those people [who has] – Sean Penn also has it – a kind of plume. I look at them and think, “How did you get this? How do you make life easy? But he has a charming and charming character. It’s a gift.”
Olivia wilde, who is now dating the “Fine Line” singer, also praised his acting skills after working with him on Don’t worry darling, which she realized.
“Little known fact: Most male actors don’t want to play a supporting role in female-directed films,” she wrote in February, after the film was shot. “Enter: @harrystyles, our ‘Jack’. Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow the brilliant @florencepugh to take center stage as our “ Alice, ” but he imbued every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity. He didn’t have to join our circus, but he jumped on board with humility and grace, and blew us away every day with his talent, his warmth and his ability to back down.
Based on these rave reviews, the Grammy winner looks set to make another splash in My policeman. Keep scrolling to find out everything we know about the movie so far:
