Harry Styles is currently in negotiations to star in the film adaptation of queer romance, My Policeman.

The currently untitled film, which has been acquired by Amazon Studios, is set to be directed by Michael Grandage, with Oscar-nominated writer Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia) adapting Bethan Roberts‘ book.

Pending negotiations, Lily James will play the lead female role, while Styles will play a handsome policeman called Tom.

Set in 1950s Brighton, England, My Policeman follows a schoolteacher named Marion (James) who instantly falls for Tom.

However, when Tom meets Patrick, a museum curator who opens his eyes to a new world, he's left with a difficult decision to make.

Though his true feelings lie with Patrick, Tom questions whether it would be safer for him, in a time where homosexuality was illegal, to marry Marion. As a result, his two lovers are forced to share him, but it's not long before one of them cracks and all three of their lives are changed forever.

This marks Styles' second movie announcement in as many weeks, having already been cast in Olivia Wilde‘s thriller Don't Worry Darling, which also stars Florence Pugh, Chris Pine and Dakota Johnson.
