Ed Sheeran wants to make a film

When you've already broken every record there is in the music industry, it can get a bit boring (apparently!)

After his third number 1 album, sold out world tour and Glastonbury headline set, Ed Sheeran doesn't have a lot left to conquer.

He's looking to turn his attention to a new film where he will be the starring role, write the theme tune, sing the theme tune etc (sound familiar?)

He says he has a lot of songs written about his home town, Ipswich and he'd like to set his biopic in the East Anglian location.

"I really want to make a film that I do the soundtrack for and star in – that's my next thing. 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.

"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," he explained.
