Professionally, I work for a radio station that just LOVES Harry Styles.
I once spent an entire week diving deep into the fandom, researching pigeons and gravy, just to fully understand every Directioners’ inside jokes to write an elaborate script for 1D’s tenth anniversairy.
So, no offence to the ‘Fine Line’ singer, but whenever I see news about him, my brain automatically switches itself off and thinks about anything else. And I mean anything. I once thought about what a house fly’s house looked like, after he was cast in Dunkirk.
However, my attention was well and truly caught when Harry Styles was said to be starring in a futuristic drama opposite Academy Award-winner, Brad Pitt. (Did your ovaries just burst then? Mine too.)
According to Vértice Cine, the ‘Watermelon Sugar’ heartthrob and Brad will be starring in Dan Gilroy’s (Nightcrawler, Velvet Buzzsaw) Faster, Cheaper, Better, a story which “deals with the great and inevitable changes that are coming in the trucking industry.”
Don’t worry – it’s not all about the woes of leaning one arm out of the window, and then having an uneven tan for weeks.
The Latin American and European film distributor continued to say “The film spans 20 years in multiple locations with intertwined stories of countless characters including: a union boss, a young businessman, an inland farm manager, and a tech millionaire.
“[Their] lives are cut short when the automation and artificial intelligence transform the world as we know it. In the end, everyone must face the meaning of being human.”
While neither Harry nor Brad have confirmed the film, all I know is that my life at the radio station is about to get a lot more hectic. THANKS A FUCKING BUNCH, HARRY, YOU GORGEOUS, TATTOOED BEAST.
