Harry Styles is currently filming his first Hollywood movie and it looks like he's lining up his next role already with the singer reportedly set to play Mick Jagger in a new Rolling Stones biopic.

According to reports in NME, the One Direction singer is the frontrunner to play the Rolling Stones star in Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell with the Rolling Stones.

The film will centre on the band's 1972 album Exile on Main Street and the summer spent in France during which they recorded it.

Based on the Robert Greenfield book of the same name, the movie is to be directed by Andy Goddard, who is known for his work on Downton Abbey, Law & Order: SVU and Daredevil.

Styles is currently filming Christopher Nolan's war drama Dunkirk, which is set for release in 2017. The 22-year-old star sent the internet into a frenzy when photos emerged online of him with short hair for the role, bidding goodbye to his signature long curly locks.
