One Direction's Harry Styles may be in line to play Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger in an upcoming biopic about the band.

According to NME, the film's working title is Exile On Main Street: A Season In Hell With The Rolling Stones, based on a book of the same name by author Rob Greenfield.

It will follow the band during the making of their album Exile On Main Street, and is to be directed by Downton Abbey director Andy Goddard.


Nothing has been confirmed yet, but Styles certainly isn't unqualified. He's currently working on war drama Dunkirk, and already has Jagger's seal of approval.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Jagger was asked who he thought matched up to his "swagger", and he named Styles, saying "he's got it going on".

'I know him, he comes to see me in lots of shows. And yeah, I can see the influence. But I don't say anything to him, I just tell him he looks nice. I like him. He's very decent," Jagger said.
