He's been in The Simpsons, he's been in Game of Thrones, he's been in Bridget Jones' Baby, Home and Away, The Bastard Executioner and practically everything except Bodger and Badger.

Now it's being reported that Ed Sheeran is possibly going to be appear in a comedy film based around the music of The Beatles.

The Daily Mail is stating that the 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' singer is in talks for a cameo role in the film, and the recently-engaged star may or may not be providing original songs to the soundtrack to go alongside the music of the Fab Four.

Rumours are the film will be called All You Need Is Love and will be about a world that exists without the group. A man wakes up one day and finds out he is the only person with knowledge of John, Paul, George and Ringo, setting the plot in motion.


That's not all, the film will be written by Four Weddings and a Funeral and Love, Actually's Richard Curtis, and directed by Trainspotting and 127 Hours' Danny Boyle.

Apparently, EastEnders' Hamish Patel (Tamwar Masood) and Downton Abbey and Baby Driver's Lily James will be starring.

That is quite the line-up, so if this doesn't happen we will be very sad indeed.
