Ed Sheeran 'in talks to join Danny Boyle's musical Beatles-themed comedy'

Safety Ed Sheeran is reportedly planning to build 5ft railings outside his home in a bid to increase protection levels at his four-bedroom abode in London

Tentatively titled All You Need is Love, it is about a struggling musician who believes he is the only person who can remember the songs of the Beatles.

Deadline was more reserved on the news, just confirming that Sheeran was "in talks to make an appearance in Danny Boyle's upcoming music-themed comedy movie".

The cast for the movie thus far includes Lily James and Himesh Patel. Plot details are being kept under wraps.

Ed Sheeran is not done with on-screen projects after his ill-received "Game of Thrones" cameo. Kate McKinnon ("SNL") is said to be in talks too, Deadline reported, with filming scheduled for this summer.

Initial word of Sheeran's involvement comes courtesy of Deadline, where it's reported that the now untitled comedy project - written by Love Actually's Richard Curtis - has already rounded up a cast that includes Lily James, Kate McKinnon and Himish Patel. Working Title and Curtis go way back, having collaborated on hits including Love Actually, the Bridget Jones franchise and Bean but, should this make, this would be a first feature collaboration between Boyle and the Universal-backed production outfit. Slumdog Millionaire moviemaker Boyle will direct the project from a script penned by Richard Curtis. Executive producing are Nick Angel and Lee Brazier. Although the as-yet-untitled movie is a musical comedy, it's unclear whether Sheeran will be contributing one of his Caribbean-inflected songs to the soundtrack, or whether he'll be exclusively in an on-camera role.
