It looks like Harry Styles is trying his hand at the acting world! While One Direction may be on a well-deserved hiatus, many members of the band are trying their hand at solo projects, including Harry.

According to Deadline, Harry has been cast in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk! While it’s not believed to be a leading role, this will be huge step for his career post-1D.

So what do we know about the film? The film will deal with the World War II evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940, which saved 330,000 soldiers trapped in the harbor and surrounded by the German army. Also called Operation Dynamo, Winston Churchill described it as “a miracle of deliverance.”

The film also stars Oscar winner Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, and Tom Hardy. So clearly Harry will be in good company. This will be Harry’s first big acting role, or first role ever (unless you count 1D’s appearance on iCarly back in 2012).

Rumors of Harry jumping into the acting world have been floating around for quite some time, some even suggesting that he could be making an appearance on the upcoming season of Scream Queens.

Dunkirk is set to release on July 21, 2017.

Are you excited to see Harry try his hand at acting?
