He's already conquered the world of music, and now Ed Sheeran has his sights set on the movie business.

The singer has spoken about his ambitions to star in and provide the soundtrack for a 'low-budget' film that is a cross between 'Notting Hill' and 'Once'.

He told The Sun: "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 added: I am in talks with one filmmaker that I really fucking love and we are going to slowly but surely put something together. I would want to cast all unknowns. I want to have low-budget, indie, British-made film.”

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Sheeran has smashed one-day streaming records with his new album 'Divide'.
