Horan also mentioned his friend Allen Leech as a possible choice. He would only want to be a part of a One Direction reunion if everyone is on board. Horan spoke of his desire to have DiCaprio or Leech play him during a conversation with ET Canada. Leech had earlier joked that he and Horan looked alike and that the latter could play a young Tom Branson if there was ever a Downton Abbey spin-off.
Horan’s career and achievements
Niall Horan is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Ireland. He first gained fame as a member of the boy band One Direction, which formed in 2010 during the seventh season of the British singing competition show The X Factor. The band quickly became a global phenomenon, releasing five albums and going on four world tours before going on an indefinite hiatus in 2016.
After the hiatus, Horan pursued a solo career, releasing his debut album “Flicker” in 2017, which debuted at number one in the US and Ireland. He has since released two more albums, “Heartbreak Weather” in 2020 and “McGuire’s Pub” in 2022, both of which received positive critical reviews.
One Direction’s potential biopic
Horan’s desire for a One Direction biopic starring Leonardo DiCaprio or Allen Leech is not the first time the idea of a film about the band has been floated. In 2020, it was reported that the band’s former manager, Simon Cowell, was in talks with streaming giant Netflix about creating a scripted series about the group’s rise to fame.
While there have been no further updates on the potential project, fans of the band continue to speculate about what the series or biopic could entail, from behind-the-scenes footage to dramatizations of the band’s many tours and performances.
Despite the success of his solo career, Horan has remained open to the possibility of a One Direction reunion. However, he has emphasized that any potential reunion would require the full commitment of all band members, and that he has not heard any concrete plans for such an event.
In the meantime, Horan continues to work on his own music and tour, with upcoming dates scheduled in Europe, North America, and Australia.
