Harry Styles’ year is 2022. Since embarking on his uber-successful solo career, the former One Direction member has dabbled in acting endeavours in addition to bringing us hits like “Music For a Sushi Restaurant.” In 2017, he landed a role in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk and has since gone on to act alongside Florence Pugh in Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling, which is also set to be released this year. My Policeman, his second film, is set in 1950s Brighton and follows a closeted police officer named Tom Burgess who lives in a world where homosexuality is forbidden. He explores his sexuality by having a covert romance with museum curator Patrick Hazelwood while dating Marion, a female schoolteacher.
So, if you’re curious about who else has been cast in the film, what it’s about, or how to see it when it comes out, you’ve come to the right place. From the premiere date to the cast members, here’s everything you need to know about Harry Styles’ upcoming film, My Policeman.
What actors have been cast in the film?
While we’re all excited for the film because of Harry Styles’ lead part, the cast of My Policeman is quite impressive. Marion, played by Emma Corrin of The Crown, is a school teacher whom Tom begins dating early in the plot. Then there’s Peaky Blinders’ David Dawson, who plays Patrick, a museum curator who draws Tom’s attention. Linus Roache, Gina McKee, and Rupert Everett play elder versions of the characters in the film.
Initially, Harry was not considered for any of the roles in the film. Harry’s team approached director Michael Grandage after reading the script and becoming “extremely interested” in the film, according to Grandage. According to the Vanity Fair story, Michael was “immediately struck” by Harry, who arrived as a “completely developed actor” during their first meeting.
“At that meeting, he had read the script so many times that he knew every single beat of it. That was extremely impressive to me. He was well-versed in other people’s lines, as well as his own. He understood why he wanted to talk about it, why one scene worked and another did not “Michael informed the news organisation. Emma was cast in the film prior of the launch of season 5 of Netflix’s The Crown, in which they played Princess Diana.
What is the story behind My Policeman?
My Policeman is based on Bethan Roberts’ novel of the same name, which was inspired by the true story of E.M. Forster and his friendship with Bob Buckingham and his wife. The following is a synopsis of the book:
Marion sees Tom for the first time in Brighton in the 1950s. Marion is enamoured as he teaches her to swim in the shade of the pier, and she is determined that her love will be enough for them both. Patrick encounters Tom a few years later in the Brighton Museum. Patrick is smitten by Tom, who introduces him to a glossy and sophisticated new world. Tom is their police officer, and it is safer for him to marry Marion in this day and age. The two loves must share him until one of them breaks, resulting in the loss of three lives.
When will my policeman arrive?
According to Vanity Fair, My Policeman will be released in theatres on Friday, October 21, 2022, and will be accessible to stream on Amazon Prime Video on November 4, 2022. Because his other film, Don’t Worry Darling, comes out a month before My Policeman, it appears that it will be Harry Styles szn at the cinema.
