The comedy is produced by Working Title's Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner alongside Matt Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew.

The singer also made a cameo in his favourite TV show "Game Of Thrones", with a fleeting appearance in the first episode of the hit HBO series' seventh season in July previous year. Sheeran will apparently write new songs, while tracks from the legendary British group will also feature in the film.

Hot off the presses comes news this morning that superstar musician Ed Sheeran is set to join the Richard Curtis scripted and Danny Boyle directed musical comedy now in development. He is the biggest hit-maker on the planet.

Lily James (Darkest Hour, Baby Driver, Cinderella) and Himesh Patel (Eastenders) are also amongst the cast, while. Slumdog Millionaire moviemaker Boyle will direct the project from a script penned by Richard Curtis. In 2014, the 27-year old musician was a guest on The Night That Changed America, a Grammys tribute to mark the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' first appearance on The Ed Sullivan show in 1964.

It's not even clear if he would be the character who wakes up remembering Beatles songs, or if he'd just appear in the movie and someone else would have that role.

It appears to be an appropriate venture for the "Shape of You" singer, who has not only made fans of Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr themselves, but also happens to be good friends with "Love Actually" writer Richard Curtis.
