The comedy is being written by Richard Curtis, the man behind Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill. Sheeran will apparently write new songs, while tracks from the legendary British group will also feature in the film.

"Everything Ed touches turns to gold", a source told the Mail Online.

Sheeran has previously appeared in Game of Thrones, Bridget Jones's Baby, The Bastard Executioner and Home and Away.


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". If casting plans go well - Himesh Patel, the actor who played Tamwar Masood in EastEnders, has been cast to play the up-and-coming musician, Also on board is The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie star Lily James and potentially Kate McKinnon - executives are looking to film this summer. "If anyone can make a film about the Beatles songs even better musically, it's him", they added.

Reports suggest that the new movie has the working title of "All You Need is Love", and it's all about a busker who wakes up and realises he's the only person on the planet who remembers The Beatles' music. Plot details are being kept under wraps.

The film is being backed by Universal, and will be produced by Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner as well as Curtis and Boyle, who recently confirmed he is writing the script for the next James Bond outing. United Kingdom tabloid The Daily Mail first reported news of Sheeran's involvement in the project.
