In a released interview with Vanity Fair, the film's director Michael Grandage revealed why Styles was perfect for the role, saying: “This story is about two people that are in love with Tom, slightly obsessed with him. Harry – the world is so transfixed on him, on his every move.”

The dramatic scenes will also show events taking place in more recent times as the characters’ choices have long-term ramifications.

Styles himself recently opened up about filming sex scenes for both movies, and when asked which would be safe to watch with your parents, he told Capital FM: "I don't know if you can watch either with your parents. I'm gonna have to do another one."

According to Billboard, Styles will display his buttocks on-screen but there will be no full-frontal nudity.
