Multi-platinum singles, multi-platinum album, Grammy Awards and a slew of other accolades are all what can be listed on Ed Sheeran’s resume. Impressive nonetheless, there is still one thing the 26-year-old singer reportedly wants to add and that is to make a film.
“I really want to make a film that I do the soundtrack for and star in” Sheeran reportedly told the British daily The Sun. “That’s my next thing.”
While he wants to work on the film’s music, Sheeran doesn’t feel as though he will do an album as a soundtrack. “I don’t think I will do an album as a soundtrack, but I will definitely put together a soundtrack with a bunch of my songs on it, but I don’t think it will be an album.”
As for the film itself, don’t expect any sort of Hollywood, big budget production. Rather expect what the “Shape of You” singer described as a “low budget, indie British-made film” with a cast of “unknowns.”
On Wednesday (March 8), Sheeran announced plans for an upcoming North American tour, which will begin at the end of June. On Tuesday, July 11, Sheeran will bring the tour right here to Philadelphia.
