Harry Styles to star In Wicked movie?

Let’s be honest, we’ve been spellbound ever since we learnt that Wicked The Musical was going to be turned into a movie. With a release date now set for 29th October 2015, there’s been one question on everybody’s lips — who will play Glinda, Elphaba and Fiyero?

Rumour has it that One Direction’s Harry Styles is being eyed up to take the male lead of Fiyero, and Lea Michele is reportedly in the running for Elphaba (a role which is sure to turn lots of Directioners green with envy). The role will be a new direction for the boy band member as his first acting role.

After Harry attended Harvey Weinstein’s pre-Oscar party, film bosses were left impressed with the curly-haired popstar and reportedly ‘see him as a new Zac Efron’. Universal Pictures, who are making the stage to screen adaptation, have placed the tween heartthrob top of their wish list for the magical role.

So far, no cast or creatives have been confirmed for the silver screen project although Billy Elliot’s Stephen Daldry is said to have been approached to direct.

Who’s your ideal Fiyero? Let us know in the comments below.
