As if he wasn’t busy enough posing with puppies, starring in Pepsi adverts and perfecting his own perfume, One Direction's one and only Irish fella, Niall Horan is talking about turning his hand to filmmaking.

Our Niall’s been given a camera and says he can’t wait to start recording himself and his bandmates. Here's hoping he avoids straying into Paris Hilton territory. Niall says he wants the footage of himself, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik to give their fans a sneak peek at what goes on behind the scenes.

He told MTV news that he's eager to do his bit for the band’s upcoming 3D movie. "They've given me a camera for the movie, so we're going to be going around [filming]. We've always had a camera with us. Like when we were touring America in the summer, we had like a camera with us every day and we were just kind of documenting stuff. 'Cause if it ever did come to a movie, then we'd have stuff ready for it." Someone was thinking ahead.

Mr Horan clearly fancies himself as something of an authority on creative genius because he’s convinced Morgan Spurlock is the perfect director for their big screen debut. "Morgan works well because he did a lot of documentary movies. That's more so what we want our movie to be. It's going to be a concert movie, but with a documentary side then concert side, so we wanted to get our personalities across because the fans know us, but we want them to know us deeper."

That's deep Niall, so deep.
