Weinstein: Styles ready for movies

Harry Styles could be branching out from his career in a boy band to take on Hollywood, according to Harvey Weinstein.

But One Directioners needn't worry as Harry doesn't seem to have any plans to leave the group just yet - in fact, the movie mogul said he even turned down what could have been his debut role as it clashed with the One Direction tour.

Harvey, who has produced films such as Pulp Fiction and this year's award-nominated Big Eyes, told The Sun: "There's no question he will enter the movie business. I get from him that he wants to.

"When you meet him, he's super-charismatic. He came to our Oscars party last year and then I went out to lunch with him. I've met him two or three times and he was very interested and charming. I think the guy is a movie star."

Harvey added of where he saw Harry's new sideline going: "You know he's a dashing rogue - a fun-loving, spirited kind of actor that used to be in England all the time. Like David Niven or Douglas Fairbanks, he's got that vibe, he really does.

"And he doesn't even have to audition for me. We offered him a part and he couldn't do the movie because he had the tour. The amount of money their tour did is crazy, so he's got obligations."
