Is Harry Styles heading back to the big screen? We’re not sure, but he’s definitely got the rumor mill spinning.
Universal is working on bringing the award-winning musical Wicked to the big screen following the huge success they had with Les Miserables. While no details on casting or release have been announced, there are some rumors floating around the internet.
According to The Sun, Harry Styles is being considered for the role of Fiyero. “He’s top of the Wicked team’s wish list to play the romantic lead role of Fiyero,” a source told The Sun. “Moviemakers see him as a new Zac Efron and think he would be a perfect casting for a movie musical.”
It’s been long stated that Harry has been interested in acting, so a musical would definitely be a natural fit. The rumor mill is also saying that Stephen Daldr is rumored to be directing and Lea Michele is being considered for the role of Elphaba.
Do you think Harry would make a good Fiyero? He’s definitely got some big shoes to fill thanks to actors like Aaron Tveit, Adam Lambert and more. Who would you cast in Wicked? We think Samantha Barks, Megan Hilty and Kristen Bell would be great.
