  • Ed Sheeran in Talks to Join Danny Boyle's Beatles-Themed Musical Comedy

Ed Sheeran is rumoured to have been cast in a new musical comedy film directed Danny Boyle and written by Richard Curtis. According to Deadline, the Universal film will also star Lily James and Himesh Patel.

The new comedy, which is tentatively titled All You Need Is Love, is reportedly about a man who wakes up one day to find he is only person who can remember the songs of the Fab Four. Saturday Night Live standout Kate McKinnon is in talks with filming due to take place 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. They said the plot was being kept under wraps, and they didn't know if Sheeran would contribute to the score. Currently, Boyle's putting the last polishing touches on his highly-anticipated FX melodrama Trust, which he's executive-producing and partially directing. The Working Title/Universal Pictures film has a script from Richard Curtis, writer and director of Love Actually.

It's unclear whether Sheeran would limit his contribution to an acting role, or if he would contribute to the soundtrack as well.
