Singer/Songwriter Ed Sheeran to Star in ONCE-Like Musical Film & Pen SoundtrackIn a new interview with The Sun, singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran revealed plans to star in a new musical film that he describes as a mixture of "Notting Hill" and "Once." The global superstar shared, ""I really want to make a film that I do the soundtrack for and star in - that's my next thing."

In describing the project he shares, "I look at a film like Notting Hill and I think that's like a brilliant benchmark, or Once. So if you were to mix Notting Hill with Once, I would say that would be a good start."

He also reveals, "I am in talks with one filmmaker that I really f***ing love and we are going to slowly but surely put something together." Regarding possible casting, he teases, "I would want to cast all unknowns. I want to have low-budget, indie, British-made film."
